The December rains reinforced the timeliness of our ROOF campaign. The old flat roof leaked; thankfully, our contract with Griffith, our roof vendor, specified that they would maintain the old roof until the new roof is on. Griffith responded promptly when called and the leak was fixed.

Before we can begin to re-roof, however, the exterior wall of the Loft must be modified to raise the window level above the higher level of the new insulated roof. Our plan to do this in December was defeated by the record rainfall, so this step will take place sometime in the January/February time frame. Then we will be ready for the new roof.

Thanks to you all who have made this project possible with your pledges and gifts, this year we will re-roof our flat roof areas to keep us dry and problem-free for years to come.
