That hole is a new one in the old gym. They had to tear into the old limestone gym to put down a new concrete floor. (I think there was a lot more work to this gym than they had originally thought. They tried so hard to save the old building, and it has been an expensive project.)
This gym was supposed to be up and running this fall. Now it looks like it will be winter or next spring. They did get a new roof on it. Nothing seems to be moving quite as fast as they had originally hoped for the schools. (There is some progress visible at the Middle School and Elementary School sites, too.)
The Lutheran Church is going up quickly. They are to be in it by Christmas. I'm sure they look forward to celebrating the holidays in their own church again.
The Methodist site is now fenced in and level. Building is always more challenging when parts of the original structure remain. (Sometimes it is cheaper and easier to start with an empty lot!)
We've seen a lot of clouds lately. Every time it rains, work halts. Thankfully, the workers are back at it before the ground dries. I wonder if they know how wonderful it is for students and staff to see something happening. I know my anticipation is going to get worse as the walls appear, but we can't get in to see the new halls and classrooms. Patience may be a virtue--it just doesn't happen to be one of mine!
