SLI is Recipient of $40,000 Grant:
Epworth Hall Receives NY State Award for Replacement of Floor

A $40,000 grant has been awarded to the Silver Lake Institute from the Genesee Valley Rural Revitalization Grant Program in conjunction with the National Park Service's Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Fund involving the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation in cooperation with the Landmark Society of Western New York.

The purpose of the grant is to accomplish the removal of the warn out main floor of Epworth Hall and the refinishing of the original pine wood floor underneath as the new finished floor. The Institute has been working on getting interior wall panels removed so as to be closer to its original architecture and the floor is a major part of that effort.

The grant preparation was worked on by Sharon Pratt, one of SLI's enthusiastic historians, and Glynn Schultz, the SLI website coordinator, a part of the Communications Committee. The SLI Board of Trustees received a notice of the approved award last month but two days after its meeting was asked by mail, to hold the announcement until after Governor Hochul could first make the public announcement. The announcement has now appeared in the WNY newspapers and on the Silver Lake Institute website (silverlakeinstitute.org).

Work is expected to begin as soon as the actual funds are received. The authorization to begin was made by the Board after being told that the roof has not been leaking, even during heavy rains. Just to cover all circumstances, the Board also authorized roof repair in the form of a patch should any leak form over the winter and spring months, as they await the grant money and capital funds donations for the roof. 

Even so, rising costs of the roof replacement have made it necessary to begin a capital funds campaign for the Epworth Hall roof. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made out to Silver Lake Institute, P.O. Box 20, Silver Lake, NY 14549. For 2021 taxes, checks should be received no later than Dec. 15, 2021.
