Past SHMA President David Welch will recount the Fall and Rise of the Orr Home. In 1996, the Orr Home had been jacked up for construction of a new foundation. The bracings proved inadequate and the structure collapsed. No one was hurt, but it started a major debate within the organization on whether to try to find funding for repairs or write the building off as a total loss. Dave will recount the accident and the following six years of work. Following the talk, he will take groups around the house, pointing out things he covered.
