TOWN OF WALSH

The Walsh Community Building was rebuilt in 1960 after the original structure burned down, and then went on to serve the area extensively with very few improvements for almost fifty years. 

In 2007 and 2008 area churches contributed money to expand the heating and air conditioning system, and a local plumbing contractor donated fixtures for the outdoor restrooms that are built onto the back of the structure; the building exterior was painted the following year.  In 2010, extensive remodeling took place inside the building, which now boasts an all new kitchen, complete with custom cabinets, commercial grade stainless steel appliances and solid surface counter tops.  The indoor restrooms were painted and equipped with new fixtures, and the entire building has new flooring.  

This work was made possible by very generous donations from the Edna Minnick Foundation, administered by Mr. Bob Chenoweth, and the Cooper-Clark Foundation.  The Edna Minnick Estate provided a total of $41,620 and the Cooper-Clark Foundation gave $15,184.21.  Several groups and many individuals also made donations of money, labor or equipment, and as you can see by the following photos, the project turned out very nicely.
