I am happy to announce that we accomplished the goal and raised matching funds for the $10,000 pledge! Thank you all so much.
A number of people asked what the desperate need is all about. The Student Union is under construction. After construction began and funds were raised to cover it, the county added additional requirements such as a sprinkler system and structural additions, totaling an additional $100,000 in costs.
At this point, we do not have the money but are proceeding with construction in hopes that we will find additional funding in time. We hope to complete the building by May, making it available for use during the temple consecration.
Having the Student Union 90% complete, yet unable to be occupied during the Temple Consecration is a very real possibility. With that in mind, we forge ahead, doing all we can to complete the project on time.
