WOW! Look at the progress in the Brandon Auditorium

Check out the work being done on the gym walls.  There have been many full days and late nights getting this work done.  It is absolutely beautiful and we can not wait for you to see it.  Thank you once again to everyone who has worked so hard to make this possible.

Brandon Auditorium Gym Walls

Look at the transformation. All of this work has been done in a little bit more than one week.  The painting is the only thing left to be done.   Thanks to everyone who has helped to make these repairs possible.  It is great to see what a community can do when we all pull together.
