M&O Exteriors has made a good start on the exterior renovation of the Arcola building. Demolition of the old exterior is complete on some areas. Once the demolition of the old exterior is complete the new surface, like that of the back building, will be installed. The noise and presence of the construction equipment will clearly cause some inconvenience to our members. We ask your patience as the project proceeds.

Reminder: Please caution your children against climbing on the scaffolding! It may look like a jungle gym to them, but it is not. It is construction equipment on a construction site and it can be dangerous. Please don't let your children roam unsupervised during this project. Please stay away from areas marked with yellow CAUTION tape.
