        2014 PROJECT Contributions:

PROJECT--"HOME" Overview: Our second floor space encompasses 2,580 sq. ft. in the 8,200 sq. ft. building used as Kendrick's Community Center.  It has a Fraternal Temple nameplate located at 614 E. Main in Kendrick.  Our "Grand Room" public space renovations, with a 2014 completion date, allows for meetings, educational sessions, and Kendrick's only historical museum.  An archival cataloging and preservation area is in place.  Our research abilities are enhanced with a scanner, a computer and a microfiche reader.  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.

Project--Local Newspaper Digitization: A John M. & Leslie L. Woodward Foundation generous contribution increases the 7,000 Kendrick Gazette newspapers pages we have been allocated to have digitized through the Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) and National Endowment for the Humanities/Library of Congress newspaper digitization grant funding project with a Aug. 31, 2014 completion date.  Woodward funds were added to the National Historical Publications & Records Commission funding received on Sept. 15, 2014 to digitize the balance (approximately 45,000 pages) of the Kendrick and Juliaetta ISHS microfilm newspaper holdings. This project phase will be completed on Dec. 16, 2014 resulting in our papers being viewable and word searchable from this site!.  See "Project Details" left side link on this page for more information.

PROJECT--"Brick Repair" Overview: The Fraternal Temple building's external brickwork is only one unique feature that placed the 1905 Community Center building on the National Register of Historic Places listing.   Some of the bricks came from Kendrick's Fruchtl Brick Company.  Generous grant and public support dollars, totaling $11,450.00 in 2013, allowed for each of 4 story walls to have leaks and crumbling brick areas repaired.  Phase 4 needs address crumbling rooftop tower edging and chimney bricks and will improve the area's drainage as well as provide a 50-year total brick protective coating.  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) for the completion of this $25,000 final phase.  Thank You -- Northwest Farm Credit Services, Inland Northwest Community Foundation's -- Community Strategies Grant, and J-K Recreation District for 2014 funding to put toward our final phase of the exterior brick repair project.

Kelly Emo completed on Oct. 10, 2014 a big part of Phase 4.  Removing 100 years of moss and dirt when the building was spray washed caused us to view additional critical brick repair areas.  The acquired $18,000.00 allowed him to repair roof drainage & par-pit wall issues and provide critical brick restorations (filling cracks and holes) to 3 1/4 walls.  With $30,000.00 additional funding the balance of the final wall will be made structurally sound and 18 windows will be restored and painted blocking bats, insects and the weather from entering.
