A project that has been on PAL’s wish list for 15 years was completed on September 30th. Thanks to Community Block Grant federal funds administered by the City of St. Petersburg, our gym has been air conditioned.
You can see the ductwork toward the top of the above photograph.
While air conditioning a gym may sound a bit like a luxury, consider that it was not uncommon for summer temperatures in the gym to eclipse 110 degrees.
Our facilities at PAL are here to be used. People can’t use a gym that is 110 degrees for long. Next year, we anticipate record-breaking use of the gym, and that will be a wonderful thing.
