Last fall, the JLP, with generous assistance from the Ardmore Initiative, JTA Associates, Inc., and Ranieri & Kerns Associates, LLC, has undertaken a much needed preservation and restoration project involving the rear façade of our headquarters building. The project, scheduled for completion in February, involves the removal of old siding, the repointing and painting of the original brick exterior walls along the rear and side of the building, as well as improved, streamlined access into the Thrift Shop from the rear parking lot. Thank you to all of our members and visitors for your continued patience and cooperation as we work to bring our building back to its former glory.
