At about 4:30 PM on Wednesday, August 6, the re-siding project of our beloved Cape Meares Community Center was completed. Mostly. Only a few odds and ends remain to completely wrap up the project that began about two years ago with a fund-raising effort.
This renovation was achieved because of the volunteer efforts of many individuals. The dollars contributed were significant and necessary for purchasing the materials needed, but the volunteer efforts were equally important. The effort was primarily “do it yourself.” DIY projects don’t always turn our as we would like, but if you take a look at the finished project you will have to agree that it looks like it was completed by professionals. That’s because two professionals, Chris Spence and Randy Klobas, were the ones who guided the volunteers throughout the process.
We now have a refurbished community center we can all be proud of and one that will continue to be an important hub of activities for many years to come.
Well done Cape Meares residents!
