Donations to the Friends of the Capital City Grange Hall support repairs, maintenance and improvements to the Grange Hall. The FCCGH has made major contributions to the Grange Hall, including:
- 2012: A new floor for the main Hall (after nearly 60 years of dancing and other uses wore out the 1953 original)
- 2013: New windows for the main Hall and the basement–thermopane, insulated ones!
- 2014: New floor mats to protect half of the floor of the Hall, and rebuilt fire egress from the basement level–which helped us get the legal occupancy of the basement raised from 49 to 100!
- 2015: New bathrooms in the basement level replaced the original, cramped, hard-to-clean cubicles. We also added an ADA-accessible bathroom downstairs, installed water-fountains in the upstairs foyer, and put baby-changing stations in bathrooms on both floors. And bought more mats to allow complete coverage of the main Hall floor.
Donations to the Friends of the Capital City Grange Hall are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, and can be used to fund projects, maintenance, and expenses of the Capital City Grange Hall. These funds also help us match grants received by the Friends, like the “Recreation Facilities” grant we received for the floor replacement in 2012, and the “Cultural Facilities” grant we received for the fire egress and bathroom renovations in 2014/15.
