BUILDING SYSTEM DESIGN UPDATE
Prior to the pandemic, CAC contracted with OLA Consulting Engineers of Hawthorne, NY, to design updates to the Southeast Old Town Hall's mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Work began and all was on target prior to the shutdown in March. Unfortunately, the budgeted revenue streams for this project piece, namely the Brewster Music and Fall Festivals, were halted and we have had to put a hold on the work. Work could resume to complete this portion of the overall project once sufficient funding is in place.
Fundraiser for Old Town Hall Building System Update Design

Friends in Southeast NY, want to join me in supporting a good cause? I'm raising money for the Cultural Arts Coalition in its 10+ year long effort to restore the historic Southeast Old Town Hall and its wonderful theater on Main Street in Brewster, NY. The Coalition hired OLA Consulting Engineers to design updates to the building mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, but the work has been halted for lack of funding due to the pandemic. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support! For more information on the Cultural Arts Coalition endeavors, see the Facebook page, CulturalArtsCo, and their website, www.CulturalArtsCo.com.
The Cultural Arts Coalition is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation dedicated to restoring the Southeast Old Town Hall Theater at 67 Main Street in Brewster, NY, while celebrating the community with transformative, inspiring arts experiences!
Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit.
ROOF CONSERVATION STUDY
Fundraiser for Roof Analysis
Want to join me in supporting a good cause? I'm raising money for Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition Inc in its 10+ year long effort to restore the historic Southeast Old Town Hall and its wonderful theater on Main Street in Brewster, NY. This campaign will (1) assess the Southeast Old Town Hall roof system with a thorough hands on inspection of the slate, gutters, brick chimney masonry, mortar joints, tie rods, chimney caps, flashings, snow guards, and projecting wood soffits to initiate repair specifications; (2) determine if replacement of slate over entire roof is warranted, and if so, whether the structure can handle an additional load of rigid foam insulation to enhance energy efficiency; and (3) assess whether a code compliant lightning protection system should be incorporated. (This work responds to findings from CAC's 2019 Technical Assistance Grant award by the Preservation League of NY.) This is one small but crucial piece of the Old Town Hall restoration which will do so much for the Village of Brewster.
