Mary L. Tracy Board of Education Meeting RoomAugust 2012
During the summer, under the guidance of Mike Luzzi, the custodians and Central Office staffand several local contractors, renovated the upstairs Board of Education room in the Mary L.Tracy School. The room was formerly being used as a library, storage area, and the MathCoordinator’s office. While the architecture was magnificent, and a gorgeous wood floor hidbelow the carpeting, the room did not look cared for. It deserved better.The Mary L. Tracy building has seen a lot of history and pride under its roof, but we hadn’t beencaring for it very well. So the idea to refurbish the space was born, but we had to accomplish itwith very little money.The room was painted and the carpet removed. The floors were restored to their natural gloryfor an amazingly small investment. The stage area was cleared of its clutter and the meetingspace was created with old conference furniture we had stored in the basement.The gallery we created is a collection of photographs of Orange’s historic homes, which hadoriginally been framed and donated by William Conway. We collected other pictures andplaced them throughout the space, along with pieces of furniture from MLT’s past.We hope you enjoy the results.
