UPDATED December 15, 2017. At last, we are delighted to report that following our most successful year of fundraising yet, we have met our development goals and now look forward to rebuilding Root Schoolhouse’s deteriorating foundation. Throughout the year we have been consulting with local professionals to prepare the best possible plan for the foundation repair, one that takes into account the building’s historic nature, the narrow and uneven lot, and the busy road. We also want a plan that leaves ourselves the flexibility to continue to improve this community resource, possibly by adding a septic system and parking spaces in the future. We don’t simply want to save the schoolhouse, we also want to see it being used by our community. Our goal is for both to happen in 2018. We invite you to help bring the schoolhouse back to life by supporting it with your time, talent, ideas and energy in 2018. If you would like to join us, please call (802) 331-0677 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
