“Our Love We’ll Always Show”
The R. A. Clement Association and the West Rowan Neighborhood Center Advisory Council have joined hands to raise $150,000 needed to install heating and air conditioning in the R. A. Clement Rosenwald (Old Building) School Building, Cleveland N. C.
First, let us say thank you to each of you for your outstanding support during the past years. RAC Alumni, individuals and families, have given more than $40,000 over the past four years to support the restoration of the Old building. Your support, along with grants and contributions from the Town of Cleveland, foundations, corporations and other individuals, have made it possible for us to complete 70% of the work needed to make our building completely accessible to alumni and the larger community. Since 2010, We have made a great deal of progress on the building, including replacing the roof, stabiliz- ing the building, repairing windows, installing two new restrooms, repairing and finishing hardwood floors, and painting throughout the building. We are now using the large room for family reunions, church events, bingo games, a line dancing class and other community activities.
We are appealing to each of you to make a contribution NOW for the HVAC, before December 31, 2017. Our goal is to have the HVAC system installed in 2018, and your contribution is vital. You may Send checks, made payable to R. A. Clement Association, or to West Rowan Neighborhood Center Advisory Council. Please remember that all contributions are tax deductible.
Thank you in advance, and Best wishes for an enjoyable Thanksgiving and Christmas. please stop by to see the building when you come home for the holidays.
In the Spirit of R. A. Clement,
