For the rest of July and August from 2:00-3:00PM, organ matinees will be held on Thursdays and Fridays. In light of the 25th anniversary of the renovation of the building, several of the matinees will feature pieces that were originally written for other instruments and have been "repurposed" for the organ.

Americana Foundation Awards KHC $25,000 Grant

Exciting news for the building on the corner of 5th and Scott Streets!
The KHC Board has been working on long-range planning for at least the past year. After long years of working on the rescue of the building, this is a welcome change of direction. It's nice to be able to be planning rather than dealing with some crisis in the building. Our hope is that we can direct efforts that will increase the use of the building and therefore assure its long-term survival.
So what's the exciting news? Well, last summer, we applied for a grant from the Keweenaw Community Foundation. We are grateful to them for providing funding to get the process rolling. Thanks to the KCF grant, we hired an engineer who has no other connection to the building to give us his suggestions for what projects should be done. His report was received later in the fall. The Board reviewed his recommendations and prioritized with budgets in mind.
Calumet Township owns the building and is the fiscal agent. So, our next step was to meet with the Township Supervisor to get his input. There are leaks in the roof again. The next critical thing right now is to replace broken glass blocks in the windows downstairs. Then the priority is to work on tuck pointing—the mortar that holds the sandstone blocks in place needs attention.
No doubt some of you are wondering what in the world is exciting about roof repair, glass block replacement and tuck pointing. "Get a life," you may be thinking. Well, to be able to implement the recommendations we got from the Keweenaw Community Foundation grant, we applied to another Foundation.
We are very pleased that the Americana Foundation has awarded KHC $25,000 that will be used for glass block repair, tuck pointing and other repairs. We'll keep looking for other funds and will work on matching. Now, that's exciting!
As KHC looks to celebrate its 116th birthday, we think that's a pretty nice birthday present!
