At the 2008 Alumni Banquet plans were announced to get the Spencer Community Hall air conditioned. After the banquet one of the alumni stepped forward and offered a HVAC unit that had been used very little, if we wanted it! That really started the ball rolling! That fall the unit was installed and is enjoyed by everyone. The following winter there was enough money raised through fund raisers & donations to install completely new handicapped accessible restrooms. Then the Class of '47 donated new front doors. Since then 8 other classes have followed suit with donations for new completed kitchen & future projects including front entrance update, lowered stage, added storage area, west wall sheetrock, and exterior siding.
All the improvements have been made possible by the generosity of individuals, organizations, grants, alumni classes and over 1300 volunteer hours of labor. It's great to see a community work together for the renovation of the Hall that holds so many wonderful memories and will be used for years to come! A plaque of recognition will be placed in the Hall by the kitchen. For inquires, call Arlene Connot (class of '61) or Jan Ruda (class of '64)
