        2014 PROJECT Contributions:

PROJECT--"HOME" Overview:  Thank You -- Clearwater Power Company & Potlatch Corporation & TDS for 2nd Floor Fraternal Temple 2014 electrical and cooling grant funding gifts.  Moneysaver contributions also has helped with Fraternal Temple main level front entry repairs.  See "Project Details" left side link on this page for more information on this project.

PROJECT--"Brick Repair" Overview: The Fraternal Temple building's 1905 external brickwork is only one unique feature that lead it to be placed the National Register of Historic Places listing.  This project corrects critical external needs centered around supporting bricks, windows, and roof drainage.  Community support can be provided either with a JKHF designated project contribution or through the Buy- A -Brick fundraiser ($50.00/brick  that can accommodate up to two names).  Thank You -- Northwest Farm Credit Services, Inland Northwest Community Foundation's -- Community Strategies Grant, and J-K Recreation District for 2014 funding for this project.

Kelly Emo completed on Oct. 10, 2014 a big part of Phase 4 determined needs.  Removing 100 years of moss and dirt with spray washing caused us to view additional critical brick repair areas thus re-evaluating spending priorities.  The acquired $18,000.00 allowed him to repair roof drainage & par-pit wall issues and fill wall cracks & holes.  Now 3 1/4 walls have all "critical" supporting areas repaired.  With $30,000.00 additional funding the balance of the TDS facing wall will be structurally sound and 18 windows will be restored and painted blocking bats, insects and the weather from entering. See "Project Details" left side link on this page for more information on this project.
