Burst pipes! Open Shop and Youth Shop to be closed until repairs are complete…

It’s really cold! So cold that two burst water pipes have forced us to close the shop until repairs can be done. Fortunately we were able to get the water shut off before there was any major damage so stay tuned for updates on when the shop will re-open.
