Early in June, Rey-Crest Roofing and Waterproofing removed and replaced the 12,000-plus square foot roof that had deteriorated over time. It has been replaced with a sleek white PVC roofing membrane that will add decades of longevity to the center. Current Electric and Acuñas Plumbing were tasked with moving and repairing over 50 conduit openings, extensive fire alarm circuitry, old gas lines, and water lines that were flush with the old roof.
“It’s the biggest project the community center has ever undertaken,” said executive director Deborah Jordan.
Construction began on June 3 for the $85,000 project. The community center is hoping to recoup the funds with donations from community members. It launched its “Building the Future” building campaign and will reach out to community members who utilize the facility, remember the days of the original Youth House, and those have fond memories of the community center over the years.
“As a community asset, it’s important to think of the longevity of the Center for the next generation,” said board president Ara Aslanian.
The center is asking for $10 or more from families and community members. Donations are tax-deductible and will help pay the cost of the new roof. Donations can be sent to the Community Center at 4469 Chevy Chase Drive, La Cañada, CA 91011.
