There were performances by the Children’s Dance Factory, the Settlement Music School Fargenign Choir, pianist Anita Adelman Auerbach and vocalist Malaina Gallagher, who sang I Got Rhythm.

The renovations cost about $500,000. PCA provided a $200,000 grant. The rest of the money came from donations and a state grant. Krug presented Lange with a plaque of appreciation.
