Pictured are the Before and After photos of the Taft Auditorium Stage Floor and the Second Floor Small Gymnasium that were completely refurbished and refinished over the past two months. Neither of these floors had been refinished in over 30 years (as the BEFORE photos illustrate). Your generous donations and financial support made this work possible along with the Second Floor Large Gymnasium and the Boys Football Locker Room that were completed in 2014. Please see the video of the locker room before and after photos on the TAB named PHOTOS & VIDEOS at the top of this page.
