FirstOnSite Restoration Raises $6000 to Support The Spirit of Newfoundland Restoration Project

Share it

We are pleased to announce that we have raised $6000 to support the restoration of the iconic St. John’s Masonic Temple, home to Spirit of Newfoundland.

During the RIMS Canada 2018 Conference, we launched a GoFundMe campaign to support the community’s efforts to preserve the historic landmark, and we’ve matched the funds raised. We also encouraged conference attendees to visit the site to explore its stunning architecture.

Deciding to assist the Masonic Temple restoration was a natural choice, as we support local communities and are committed to the craft of restoration. The building has been a mainstay of St. John’s cityscape since 1894. It features four performance rooms, a massive pipe organ and pianos in every room. It is home to the performance group Spirit of Newfoundland, as well as musical dinner theater events, weddings and community groups.

“The support shown by RIMS attendees and the community at large is an acknowledgement of the importance of preserving historic landmarks,” said Dave Demos, CEO of FirstOnSite Restoration. “Our business is restoration of all types of homes and businesses and this was a perfect initiative to complement our participation at this year’s RIMS Canada event.”
