White Cloud Aerie returning this Spring
Story and photos by Charles Chandler
In Greek mythology, a Phoenix is a long-lived bird that obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Like the Phoenix the White Cloud Eagles Aerie #4170 has risen from the ashes of the May 19th 2017 fire.
On a cold and blustery Monday morning I stopped by the building site to do a quick bit of sidewalk supervising. The cheerful and hearty Mickelson Construction framing crew were hard at work with total disregard for the cold biting wind. I found Project boss Jeff Legard and framer Ryan Bultema inside discussing the installation of the north side exit door. Jeff said that working with Eagles Aeries Board had been easy and that had made it a fun project.
When asked about the project timeline, he gave the perfect project manager answer. He said that the recent cold spell had slowed thing down a little, but if the electrical, mechanical, and plumbing went OK, and the dry wall went up as planned, and the installation of equipment and furnishing went OK, then the building would probably be move in ready by the end of March. We will be looking forward to celebrating the grand opening with our good neighbors from the Eagles Aerie #4170.
Hopefully it will just a tad warmer.
