September Administrators Letter

Administrators Letter

On the morning of Friday, August 18th I was greeted on the patio with bricks on the ground. Brick buildings are high maintenance and owning one is asking for constant upkeep. You must be wondering, “What happened?” Well, water has accumulated behind the bricks on the inner west wall, facing our patio. Over the years, water has frozen and thawed and deteriorated the mortar and the integrity of the bricks themselves. This has pushed the bricks away from the wall, slowly but detrimentally over the years. If you decide to take a look, you will notice where some of the bricks have fallen from, and where others have “bulged” and are at risk of falling. The repair cost for this is something we will need help with, as it is significantly out of the ordinary for us.

“One Brick at a Time” is the name of our fund raising efforts. I am estimating the cost of this project to be in the range of $75,000.00. St Ann’s has some funds saved for this type of unexpected project, but your help is greatly appreciated. No gift is too small. If you would like to donate towards this project, please fill out the form below and bring it to the front desk for Scott or Jan.


Thank You,
