Fellowship Hall Flooring: Cost for flooring and paint $13,981.48, fund has $13,562.10,
just a little short. However, it’s in our best interest to have asbestos tiles removed,
that cost will make the total cost significantly more than the above. Working on
getting professionals in as soon as possible for removal.
