Dear Branch Friends and Supporters,

Have you noticed the 60-foot ladder in front of The Branch House this week? The Road to Rehabilitation has begun! Work has started on the Northeast and Northwest corners facing Monument Avenue. Daniel & Co. is diligently replacing the badly deteriorated 100-year old wood around the upper floors of the building, while Saunders Roofing repairs the slate roof. Next week the scaffolding goes up, and you should see a bevy of workers. We at The Branch are excited to begin this work. It’s the first step in a long journey, but we are thrilled to be able to begin in our Centennial Year.
