May5>Holland Project Status & Options

We all agree we have to replace our current 50 plus year old HVAC system that warms and cools us.


  • It has gone way past its expected life of 25-30 years
    • and therefore parts are hard to come by and expensive.
      • When we can’t find replacement parts anymore on eBay,
        • then we will have to have them custom made
          • and that will get even more expensive.
        • This year alone we had to spend $900 on a new float to regulate water flow
          • so that the water didn’t overflow, running down the side of the building.
        • We also spent $10,000 on a new pump.

We have a firm bid of $318,624.40 from Durazo Construction…

  • to replace the HVAC including…
    • demolition,
    • asbestos removal,
    • a new raised cement pad for the system,
    • a new fence
      • with a berm to stop flooding from the east
    • and the new equipment installed,
      • along with a modernized electrical system.

Within a few days, when the last of the pledges are paid up…

  • we will have in hand $257,724.
  • We have been using the number $58,000 shortfall,
    • but the exact numbers are $60,900.40.
  • Leaders have already pledged $29,000 to the shortfall,
    • that leaves us $31,900 to go.

We are working to get a TEP rebate

  • for replacing an old HVAC with a more energy efficient one.
  • It looks like we will get several thousand dollars from them toward the project.

We need your help;

This is an encore to a very successful Capital Project Campaign 2 years ago.

  • Please dig deep
    • and see if you can’t find another $1000, $500 or even $100.
  • People who have joined us in the last two years,
    • this is your opportunity to be part of the Holland project.
  • Please consider a significant gift.
  • We need just
    • 6 people to give $5,000,
    • or 31 to give us $1,000.
    • However, every little bit helps.
