Todd Anthony and The Cooler Conference Center have announced the Save a Restaurant, Feed a Hero program. The program is yet another example of how Anthony continues to demonstrate his commitment to charitable giving. Through the Cooler Center, the program will help the local community and its businesses continue to thrive. While the Cooler Center's doors remain closed, the program launched to raise a total of $100K. The money will be used to purchase gift cards at local eateries/restaurants to be donated to first responders and medical workers. These front line heroes now can look forward to enjoying a carry out meal with their families between shifts. You can donate by going to coolercenter.org. The DONATE HERE menu appears on the front page. There, you have the option to enter your donation by credit card, mail your donation or call to donate. Many businesses have already joined in the effort. Your generosity for first responders is greatly appreciated.

A little rain can't stop our crew! We're replacing the roof rafters and eliminating temporary support jacks that have held up the roof for years.

Your chance to see this Historic home!!
Hey The Historic Mills House, here's the album of completion pics. I was soooo fortunate and humbled to get to be a part of this amazing restoration.
Will the home be open to the public at any time to view?
Any news about an opening date?
Projected availability for events? How to contact? Thanks.
Loved seeing the house, last week. Thanks for the tour. So many wonderful memories of Mr. and Mrs. Mills, and of course, Susie, and all of the parties there for the Franklin College Pi Phis. You're doing a wonderful job of restoring it.
I noticed that work seems to have come to a halt, the house has been completely dark, and there's now a "public notice" sign in the yard... has something happened?
Living next door in the Timbers for 15 years and watching that wonderful structure deteriorate I am so pleased that you are restoring it. The neighborhood is too! Good for you!
So glad this house is being saved, re-purposed! It looked so sad for such a long time and now it looks happy!
Hey there, if you want to see a few more pics from this month's issue of Greenwood Magazine, you can check them out here!! https://www.facebook.com/pg/JWcreative.indy/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1164533187063231
Today the restoration work continues on the home and a beautification of the grounds is in the works too. The project promises to truly be an amazing reuse of the property for a Conference & Event Center; one the community will be proud of for generations to come. I'd like to share a few discoveries we found over the past few months. The flat ceilings contained a radiant coper tube heating system for each of the expansive flat roofs. This was disconnected long ago and has been removed in the process of restoring the ceiling finishes. Termites had at some time infiltrated the walls in the main entry and left their tracks behind the wood paneling. All of this has been removed and surfaces are being restored. Lastly we found a newspaper article clipping telling how to kill moths odorlessly by hanging a cloth saturated with formaldehyde in the closet for 12 hours!
