Steel Signing – Leave Your Mark on the New JCC

As you drive past the corner of Cherryvale and Arapahoe, you can see the incredible progress on the Boulder JCC Building Project. All of the caissons have been poured, the foundation is in, and we have begun to build above ground. The structural steel is currently being installed throughout the building. View the progress on the Boulder JCC’s live sitecam (which updates photos every 2 minutes). The primary visible portion you can see is the southern entryway to the new building.

From inception, the new building project has been a community-wide endeavor. It has and continues to be an act of building community through a community building. In that light, the Boulder JCC invites everyone to come sign their name on a piece of structural steel that will be placed in the new building. Everyone is invited to take part in this event. The Boulder JCC would not be here without the amazing support of the entire community.steel signing_lr

Stop by the Boulder JCC lobby during the following times to sign your name and leave your mark:

  • Friday, May 22, 9 am – 2 pm
  • Tuesday – Thursday, May 26 – 28, 9 am – 5 pm

steel signing 2_lrThis piece of steel will be photographed before it is placed during construction. While it will not be visible once construction is complete, it will remain sealed within the walls at the center of the new building. Having the community join the JCC in signing the steel means so much – it will be symbolic of the fact that the community did this together.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to donate to the Cornerstone Capital Campaign yet, please join us. Your donation – big or small – is welcome and will make a difference.
