The success rate for turning an old school into a productive and viable contribution to the community is very low. Other communities have tried and failed. Spencer Penn’s volunteers are the determining factor.
Since the very beginning, volunteers have given their energy, talents and time to make Spencer Penn a success. Renovating tasks included painting, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and anything else that needed to be done. Other volunteers became active in establishing the library. During the many fundraising events, volunteers stepped up to handle any jobs that were needed. Community members baked many desserts and donated them. Whatever Spencer Penn needed, someone came forward. Spencer Penn has come a long way but the need for volunteers is still great if “she” continues.
