We could use your help!

The schoolhouse is maintained and heated by DONATIONS of time and money, and by use fees. The management is VOLUNTEER. The work to maintain an 1885 building is endless and costly. In order to keep it available for canyon use, Salina needs your HELP.

There are many things that need fixing: routine maintenance, lingering fire-related repairs, and flood damage. We have compiled a work list below with estimates totaling approximately $20,000.

If you have expertise in any of the projects below, can recommend someone who does, have time to volunteer, or have a wish to help us financially, please
email Marti Anderson  mmasalina@msn.com  
or mail donations to the Salina Community Association, 175 Gold Run Road, Boulder, CO 80302.

1. Move bottom sandstone step to the playground back into place. It was dislodged during the flood or early flood recovery.  [$200 estimate]
2. Paint exterior. The back side paint blistered during the 2010 fire when one of the outhouses burned, and the paint is now peeling off in spots. The blistered bottom back was scraped, primed and painted in October 2016.
The windows were in poor shape. They were repaired, reglazed and repainted (exterior only) in late 2016. [Work done by High Altitude Finishes, Ward, CO for $3,202.]
The schoolhouse siding and trim still needs to be painted, as well as the coal shed and outhouses. [$5,950 bid.]
3. Roof repair or replace.  [Need estimate.]
4. Purchase storm windows to protect windows and improve heating.  [Need estimate.]
5. Replace recessed panels on the exterior schoolhouse doors. The material used by the carpenter who fabricated the doors in 1994 deteriorated from moisture.  [$900 estimate]
6. Repair cracked plaster and paint interior.  [$3,000 estimate]
7. Improve foundation (eroded by time and flood) on the coal shed. Repair shingles.  [Need estimate]

2. Move the 1885 flood-damaged outhouse for wall rebuild, repair outhouse, return to original location with new foundation. [Work completed by RAM Excavating, Peter Brady and Marion Reynolds.]
