HSARC Clubhouse Renovations

At the September meeting, the Building Committee presented it's report and recommendations for some renovations to the clubhouse. The members voted to give the Building Committee a $750 budget to complete their goal of replacing the ceiling in the clubhouse. Also the fuse box would be upgraded to a 100 amp circuit breaker panel, some old wiring would be replaced and new lights would be added.
Shawn Morgan kicked off the renovations by removing the old styrofoam ceiling from the clubhouse.

The Saga Continues....

With the old ceiling now removed from the clubhouse, it was time to get started on cleanup and the upgrades. The first order of business was to remove the debris from the ceiling removal, clean up the clubhouse and remove some of the old outdated wiring and replace it with new.
