Cool Air Coming to Auditorium

Have you even been in our auditorium on a really hot day? It can be pretty brutal. Harvey Feldman (who "turned on the Lights" at Frederickson/Peterson Stadium, was at a pretty hot event last year in our auditorium. He decided it was time to for our first rate auditorium to be as cool as it looks. The compressor went up on the roof today and the cool air is on the way! Facebook Post
Thanks Harvey!
