Phillip Wilhite, Grand Knight, Dan Gregory lead the group of volunteers in removing walls, electrical and plumbing fixtures from the future multipurpose meeting room. The task of removing electrical and plumbing was assisted by Jeff Dupree and several licensed electricians who donated their time for a safe demolition.
