The finishing touches went on yesterday, January 3rd 2024. Thank you to the crew from PNW Roofing’s Silvino, Oscar, and Juan for doing a nice job of putting the final pieces of our pavilion puzzle together. They installed our cedar shake roof as the icing on the cake to complete the project. The Outdoor Classroom is now open for the public to enjoy.
With the shingles in the place, the trick was getting the flashing to fit snug on the rafters…

*Exit Stage Left
Why do they say exit stage left?
The extension of this theory is that when you enter from the audience’s left (stage right) you should exit to the audience’s right (stage left) because our perception is that when characters leave the stage to our right (stage left), they’re moving off into the distance and they’re gone.
ps- If you were hoping to hear the song, here it is: The Roof is On Fire, Rock Master Scott & The Dynamic Three
We plan to have a weekday evening ribbon cutting in February and a Grand Opening on Saturday, May 11th. Mark your calendars
