    I seams clear to me from the historical photos that the building is in need of some cow spots.

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation yesterday! Thank you for hosting the highly education event. As a member of Threshold, I’m wondering if your group could share with us any historical photos of our building? You showed a few in the presentation yesterday and we’d love to include them in our digital record. Thank you in advance for your help!
