Redmen Hall to close for updating, etc.
To The Eagle:
The board of Friends of Skamokawa would like to update the Wahkiakum community about the status of Redmen Hall. We have a building held up by posts and beams that have been there since (as far as we know) the time Redmen Hall was moved up from the Skamokawa waterfront in the late 1920's. It has held up amazingly well, but finally needs some up-dating. In addition, there are some new regulations about earthquake retrofitting for public buildings that we need to comply with for insurance and future funding concerns. While this work is being done, we have to close the hall. The best estimates give us about two months of down time and then we will re-open with an exhibit celebrating the fishing community of Wahkiakum County and the Lower Columbian Estuary.
During this time, we could use some volunteer help - with moving items out of the hall, some minor building work, with keeping up with office work and such. If any of you could help with this busy time, let us know-call 795-3007 or 795-8675 and we will accept your help with gratitude.
Jill Hatier, Board President, Friends of Skamokawa
