Repair of East Wall Currently Underway!

The east wall of Redmen Hall is being repaired by Leinweber Construction of Naselle.  The rot was not as extensive as first anticipated, but the supporting beam was needing to be replaced.  Photos show before and after.  If you've been considering a donation to the Redmen Hall building fund, now would be a really great time to do it!

Buy a Birdhouse - Put a Bell Back in the Tower!

2014 marks the 120th Anniversary of Redmen Hall.  The school was dedicated at a picnic on July 4, 1894.  To commemorate this event and to raise funds for a new bell in the bell tower, Redmen Hall is offering limited editions of hand-painted craft birdhouses for a minimum $10.00 sponsorship.  Help bring the "ring" back to Skamokawa!  Available at the Wahkiakum County Fair on Friday and Saturday and at Redmen Hall.
