Shoutout - MacArthur Co. Roofing

The FRA would like to send out a very special thank you to McArthur Roofing, located on Broadway east of Fancher.  MacArthur Roofing has donated a bundle of roofing for repairs to the wind damaged roof of the cottage. We want to thank them by recognizing their contribution and patronizing their business.  The FRA rents out this cottage and it provides a significant amount of proceeds to the association.  Upkeep and maintenance is a key part of our stewardship of the FRA buildings and this donation is significant for us.
