January 2018 Udpate


The Town Hall foundation has been sealed and backfilled.  We will soon see the building taking shape as walls go up, the floors go down and the roof goes on.

New windows and interior doors will be ordered in a couple weeks.  Some of the windows from the old town hall will be reused in the upper south end of the new building.  There will be double entrance doors opening into the main meeting room, just as in the old town hall. The Glen Haven Town Hall sign that hung on the front of the old building can also be reused.

A new donation request letter is being mailed the first week in February.  Enclosed will be a financial report and a Giving Tree Form. (You may also download the form from this website)  For a gift of $500 or more you may choose a pine cone or rock to have engraved with your name or sentiment or memorialize a loved one.  If you have already made a donation of $500 or greater and would like to be included in our Giving Tree mural, please fill out and return the form and make note that you’ve already contributed.

This is a rough sketch of the wall mural to which the engraved pine cones  and rocks will be attached.

We have a limited number of 2013 Flood Photo Books available and they are being offered at 50% off plus shipping.  Click on the flood book page on this website for details.

Town Hall Update December 2017

The last couple of months have been filled with much activity at the new Town Hall site.  The progress made is quite obvious as we can now see the completed stacked retaining walls behind the building site.  A rock swale has been created on the north side to carry water away from the building and the well water line has been buried to the building site.  Excavation of the crawl space area and foundation is complete and the building foundation should be completed by the end of December.

The actual building should start taking shape after the first of the year!  Exciting times as our new Town Hall becomes a reality!
