Raise the Roof - Thank You!


A Heartfelt Thank You!

Raise the Roof was a campaign initiated by a group of supporters who saw the desperate need for replacing the roof to save the Temple.

The hard work and support from so many in our community helped make this possible!

We would like to thank those responsible for planning and making this happen.

Mary Ann Weiner, Judy Beck, Teri Novotny and Jennifer Kuntz

These women learned of our desperation for this critical need, and gave their time to organize a fundraiser "Raise the Roof" in February of 2019. Months of planning went into this 

Dane Hansen Foundation

We are grateful for the support Dane Hansen Foundation in granting $35,000 to help complete the funding needed for this critical project. With a dry and secure building, the people of Northwest Kansas have benefited from having a beautiful 160,000 sq. ft., National Historic Register community center that will serve as a resource hub for the city and region, business entrepreneurs, civic groups and organizations, and a wide variety of artists.

City of Salina

We are appreciative of the commitment by the City of Salina to give $75,000 from the 2019 budget to assist with a large portion of the funds needed to begin the roofing project.


We also would like to thank the donors who gave so generously to Raise the Roof!

Thank you to Ryan Roofing, for the hard work and fantastic job replacing this roof.
