The NHMSM thanks major sponsor Home Depot and manager Julie Phillips for donation of all the paint and supplies for this major project!!
The Historic Hart Home gets a fresh coat of paint and new porch and handicapped ramp!
Community Development Block Grant, CDBG, funds, obtained by writing a grant to the City of Santa Maria will be used shortly for labor to repair and replace the porch and ramp as well as enlarge doors to handicapped regulation. The grant only covered the porch and ramp and not the painting so the museum board rolled up their sleeves and tackled the job. Thank you to community volunteers including Morgan Stanley Smith Barney brokers and staff, Laura Dias, Matt Dias, Ruth Lillard, Donna Viadella, John Fuhring, Adam Wilson, Gary Prober , Alex Ferrel (professional painter), Mondo Paz from Premier Body Shop, Brian Allison from House of Glass and Berto Van Veen, the job got done. Next Day Signs will re-install the re-freshed sign in a new location. Stop by and take a look.
