The “Raise The Roof” Campaign Reaches Its Goal!
Thank you for your gifts and prayers resulting in our goal of $140,000 being raised to purchase critically needed
equipment; replace the thirty year old roof on Hangar A; and to install a lighter, self-powered, energy efficient
main hangar door. Lord willing, the actual door installation and roof replacement will be underway as you read this.
Other equipment already purchased: ten new laptop computers to facilitate the effectiveness of our maintenance crews,
a newer used forklift, and a nearly new scissors lift. Each of these have already been in use for several months. It’s
such a blessing to have dependable equipment and trustworthy tools. Thank you for your commitment and generosity in
making these improvements and upgrades possible.
