The Greencreek Community Hall is expanding! We are adding a 20' x 96' covered deck to the west side of the Hall. See the computer mock up (lower photo) of what it will look like when it is done! The goal is to provide more area for people to congregate during events in warmer weather. Estimated material costs are $50,000. The St Anthony Society is donating $10,000 towards the project and all the labor to complete the expansion. If you wish to make a donation towards the Greencreek Community Hall Expansion Project an account is set up at the Cottonwood Credit Union for the Greencreek Community Hall. Donation checks should be made payable to Greencreek Hall and that they can be dropped off at any Cottonwood Credit Union branches or mailed to Cottonwood Credit Union, P O Box 507, Cottonwood, ID 83522. Our goal is to have it complete by the 4th of July! Demolition started last Saturday and footings were dug. Footings were installed and poured Friday. Saturday in the rain the wall forms were put up. Thank you to Pacific Steel for the donation towards the rebar, Arnzen Building Construction and Quinn Wemhoff for the use of their forms, Nancy Arnzen for always keeping this area mowed nice, Rhonda Wemhoff for the architectural consultation, Dale Stubbers, Scott Wemhoff & Brady Arnzen for heading up this project and the rest of the St Anthony's Society for all the hard work.
