Our Final Push to Restore the Clubhouse
The Mount Baker Community Clubhouse is an important feature in our neighborhood. Not just as an historical building but as a place to help us build and preserve a sense of community.
A number of years ago a small, dedicated group of Mount Bakerites began the long and difficult process of fundraising to restore the failing building, bring it up to code and ensure a financially sound future for the building.
The target was $1,000,000 and we are within $130,000 of that goal. Raised from grants from many sources and the generosity of local residents. Will you join them in making a donation?
Work Already Completed
The community club is the heart of what makes Mount Baker a great place to live; it belongs to everyone who lives in Mount Baker, and it is up to us to give what we can to help renew this treasured community legacy.
As well as a new rook, there are new doors and widows throughout. We have also replacing the failing boiler with an energy-efficient gas-fired boiler, remediating or removing the oil tank. The damaged brick chimneys have been removed or repaired, and the pedestrian passageway on the north side of the building has been enhanced. Installed new heaters in the pre-school.
Still to Do:
Upgrade electrical and lighting systems. Upgrade the disability lift. Replace the bathrooms. Paint the building interiors. Replace the ballroom floor. Upgrade the kitchen. Paint the building exterior. Upgrade ramps, walkways and landscape.
We are so close to the target - and then we will be done. For good. Having done good.
