Contractor donates to roof work at Tayamentasachta
The only bid received to replace the roof on the farmhouse at Tayamentasachta came in at $225,000, about $35,000 more than was raised for the project in a fund drive by the Greencastle-Antrim Education Foundation.
However, the owner of 3 Clovers Roofing and Construction of Mercersburg is a Greencastle-Antrim High School graduate and is donating the difference for the project at the district's environmental center, Jolinda "JC" Wilson, chief financial officer, told the school board Thursday.
Erik Davis graduated from G-AHS in the early 2000s and the "project is in our wheelhouse," according to Kevin North, vice president.
North said they want to give back to the community and enjoy historic preservation projects.
"Helping to preserve a building and with education for students is important to us," North said.
The goal is to complete the work this summer so there will not be any disruption for education, he explained.
