The old schoolhouse at Cedar Hill gets some much needed repairs on the roof

Our community of Aztec and surrounding areas are still recovering from the hurt and loss experienced on December 7. Such pain will be felt for years to come. But many good things are also happening around the neighborhood. These acts of kindness remind us of the goodness that abounds in our community and give us hope that we will heal.

In Cedar Hill we are very thankful for the kindness and dedication to our community shown by Frank Patterson, owner of Basin Roof Systems in Farmington. Upon hearing of the plight of the roof on our historic one room schoolhouse, which is now used for community gatherings, Toby Tache, manager of the roofing business, offered to donate their labor to fix the roof. Later they contacted us and said they would complete the entire repair for free! On Monday, December 18, they did just that: Caulking all of the hundred plus holes in the steep old metal roof. The team of five guys, including Dion the Great (who is a local music artist in his spare time), are completing a repair that we expect to last for years to come.

Caring for a hundred-plus-year-old building has been rather overwhelming at times for the volunteers of the Cedar Hill Farm Local. We are doubly encouraged therefore by the kindness and generosity shown to us. They stepped in when we didn't know where to turn and showed that there is still a lot of good in the neighborhood. We cannot thank them enough for donating their time, materials, and skills; when we all share our talents and abilities, success is guaranteed!
