Getting Ready for Summer Heat

The west side of the historical society’s building at 1870 Anaheim Avenue is undergoing a major transformation from turf with shade trees to parking lot. With the removal of the shade trees, the society was faced with the prospect of an increased heating effect of the afternoon sun on our floor-to-ceiling plate glass windows. The solution? Insulation!

A call to our friends at Ganahl Lumber netted us a donation of 14 sheets of rigid foam insulation. On Friday, April 6, a team of volunteers installed the insulation in the west-facing window frames. Thanks to Steve and Estelle Hughes, Bob Palazzola, Rob Braun, Mary Ellen and Art Goddard, the insulation panels were cut and installed in about three hours.
