The Florissant Valley Historical Society gratefully acknowledges the generosity of the Florissant Rotary Club. Rotary provided a much-needed community grant to help with the front façade repairs that have been underway, specifically helping to restore the house’s magnificent columns. The accompanying photo shows the scaffolding in place.
The columns were damaged by weather and weakened gutters. The column bases were failing and threatened their stability. This summer, with the kind support of the Florissant Rotary, repairs to the gutters and columns were begun.
The Florissant Rotary Club conducts fundraisers throughout the year and donates the money raised to many worthy community efforts, such as human service agencies, children’s charities, and historic preservation.
The FVHS Board of Directors extends its sincere thanks to the Florissant Rotary Club for its generous donation and its substantial record of service to the community.
