Green Valley House mortgage: $119,250 still needed to reach $200,000
Upper Campground bathhouse remodel: $68,700 still needed to reach $75,000
Upper Campground pavilion extension: $28,000 still needed to reach $28,000
Project descriptions:

1) Green Valley House mortgage (Goal: $200,000)

Purchased in 2019, Green Valley House contains two separate living spaces that serve as housing for staff (primarily year-round staff) and volunteers. Construction costs for the building renovation (about $350,000) have already been paid; we are raising funds to continue making quarterly payments on the remaining mortgage.

2) Upper Highland Campground bathhouse remodel (Goal: $75,000)

This project will involve gutting, rebuilding, and enlarging the existing bathhouse. The design offers 3 private bathrooms, one accessible family bathroom with shower, and one private shower. It will also increase kitchen counter space within the pavilion and add new sidewalk/deck areas beside the bathhouse end of the pavilion, with the roofline extended to cover the dishwashing station. We will begin the project when we have raised at least $50,000 – our hope is to start work on November 1, 2024!

3) Upper Highland Campground pavilion extension (Goal: $28,000)

This is actually “Stage 2” of the Upper Highland bathhouse remodel. In this stage, we will double the covered pavilion space with a 24’x24’ addition to Mt Everett Pavilion in the Upper Highland Campground, improve lighting, and replace the existing roof. We will be able to begin the project when we have raised at least $18,000. Depending on fundraising, this part of the project may be completely along with the bathhouse remodel, or it may be completed separately.
