Thank you to all who donated in 2022 to our matching gift fund. We successfully completed this critical phase and have secured the required funds for the MDOT Grant matching fund requirement.

The PARLA Board this spring approved a second contract with ICC Commonwealth of $425,000 that covers all the interior work not contained scope of the MDOT grant. The work includes: items such as installing all the interior trim, reinstallation of existing doors, interior staircase repairs, interior wall restoration and reinstalling the vents in the lantern.

The final piece of the puzzle is $100,000 for power and water. Our electrical partner, Zimmerman & Sons, will be completing all the work required to install the wind and solar systems. Our plumbing partner, Thumb Cooling & Heating, will be installing our water system.

We have to date raised $400,000 of the $525,000 required to finish our project. Thus our goal this summer is to identify another $125,000. Can you make a gift and help us reach our target? Help us keep the light shining?
