Spring Challenge - How much we can accomplish is up to you!

You can help us get three high impact projects completed… if we can raise $12,350 in the next few weeks.

1) The water damage from this winter's ice dams is covered by our insurance, but not the improvements to the roof so this type of damage doesn't happen again.  Roof repairs: $6,200.

2) Our parking lot and driveway entrance also took a beating from the winter storms. Repair black top entrance and re-grade gravel parking lot: $4,650.

3) The LAA qualifies for a state-funded discount on the price of energy-efficient LED lights for our gallery.  These lights will last 20 years and use two-thirds less energy. The discount program is only available for a short time and we would like to take advantage of it! LED lights for the gallery: $1,500.

You can make this the best spring ever! Please contribute or pledge whatever you can. Your donation today will protect our art and gallery from water damage, make our parking lot safer and light the way.

 With sincere thanks,

Katherine Simmons, President
