Some members of the group also worked on cleaning out more of the downstairs classrooms. This one room in particular is proving it self to be more difficult than the other rooms. Under tons of debris, we discovered a gross moldy carpet that needed to be pulled up. On top of this, this room was also one of the rooms that was caught on fire. This made the entire room very dark to work in.
The fence is constantly being fixed to help keep out trespassers. Remember, this building is PRIVATE property constantly being watched by JSO and ALPG Security. Our group is allowed on site by the owners for strict volunteer purposes to help save the school!
The auditorium also needed some grooming done. Eventually we will scrape this area down to bare concrete, but right now all we can do is keep it cut!
Painting on the Chelsea Street side was also done! Now all that is left is a small portion on the College Street Portico and the Knee Wall is complete!

Many plans for April, but until then, see you at the end of it!! As always thank you for the support with your favorite preservation team, the Annie Lytle Preservation Group!
If we are not at the school, we are at Beach Road Chicken Dinner! If you have not been there you should stop on by!
