Last Construction Update of 2016

Friends of Scouting,

Today will be the last construction update of 2016!  We are so blessed to have the opportunity to serve our scouts and adults and we are accomplishing this through a newly renovated Scout Service Center- this is your Service Center and we believe the things that you will see sometime round April of this next year, will simply be amazing.

Below you can see the progress that's being made and we should be seeing the new flooring, cabinets, built-in desks and other final items being completed in the next few weeks.  The new furniture is being shipped next week so it should be in Amarillo around the same time Phase 1 of the renovation is done.

Thanks go to our Scouts, Scouters, customers, and importantly, our Staff who are being very patient in a very inconvenient work situation but still giving 100 percent of their effort.

Have a great new year and we look forward to posting more photos in a week or so!

Scouting Friends,

Renovations and construction are continuing nicely.  This week, the ceiling grids are being installed in both the old and new areas.  The first coat of primer/texture has been put on, and they are getting the floors ready.  We also contracted with Suddenlink for Internet and TV service.  The Internet is great- we can actually see the speed difference that cable is over DSL.  We will be purchasing large TV's to put in the Conference Rooms where volunteers can use Laptops to do presentations, trainings, etc.

The Storage Building has been sheet rocked and is almost ready for initial priming.  I've included some pictures to look at below.

More to come next week!!!!

Construction Update

Hello Friends of Scouting!

Construction is moving at a fast pace now!  The painters have finished preparing the walls in the old office area along with the new offices.  The insulation is being finished up in the new part of the building.  Sheetrock is being finished up this week.

We have picked out all the colors of the paint, carpeting, other flooring etc. so that will start soon.

That's about it for this post.  Watch for more next week!
