Centre Gives

Thank you for helping!

The CentreGives event raised $5,052.32, net.  The funds this year were added to those raised in 2022 for the wooden siding on the railroad track side that is original, from 1885, to be replaced. - turned out that only about 1/3 had to be replaced.  Also five small ventilation doors and the back door had to be replaced so that the historical renovation of the buildings themselves can be completed. This work was expertly done by Nittany Custom Buildings, Inc. In the process of replacing the sills, some of the stonework in the Coal Sheds had to be re-built by Phil Hawk and Eli Green.  Funds needed for this project will exceed $50,000.  Work will be completed in time for the 2023 Lemont Christmas Market.

In addition Jeff Bower, long-time Lemont resident, manager of the Diane Moore  Fund at the Centre Foundation.  It is specifically for bird and butterfly habitat plants, and he contributed a nice amount to our CentreGIVES fund this year for the pollinator garden and other Village Green landscaping   Thank you!
