Building D & E Updates

Crews at Neal Dow have been busy framing up our three new buildings. Two buildings (D&E) will be classroom buildings and the third building is a multipurpose building with a full size basketball court, a stage, dinning area and kitchen.
Our next step is to get buildings D & E weatherized and interior work finalized by the end of April!
