ROSS HAMILTON PHOTOGRAPHY 

Ross Hamilton is a 40 year veteran explorer of the Olympic Peninsula and a 50 year student of his art. His long standing pursuit of excellence and accuracy has earned him the respect of those who treasure the beauty of the Olympics. His straightforward style celebrates the beauty of his subjects with little embellishment. For him, the original cannot be improved upon. Though his passions run deep, he lays little claim to artistic achievement, thinking himself to be a 'copy boy' for the Creator's art. Come in December 5th, Friday night from 5 - 8pm to visit with Ross and look at his new canvasses for sale.

 About this Project

A Vertical Platform Lift is needed to give all audience members access to our staged events at the Historic Dungeness Schoolhouse. The Schoolhouse is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and is a valuable site for the performing arts and needs to become ADA compliant. 

Currently, the chairlift is only capable of three trips upstairs at the most, and then leaves the rider standed until the batteries need recharging. The chailift needs replacing & no longer cost effective to maintain.

IThe Historic Dungeness School House, opened in 1893.  Sequim is primarily a retirement age community that enjoy the programs, plays, and classes presented on the theater stage.  Accessibility to the second floor is not available to those with disabilities. The vertical platform lift will not only bring the rider to the second floor, but make it wheelchair accessible.

In November Readers Theater +, a local non-profit benefit theater troupe, sponsored a day long variety show benefit consisting of two variety shows to raise funds for the Vertical Platform Lift. The Dungeness Schoolhouse Vertical Platform Lift Benefit raised community awareness of the need for replacement and succeeded in raising an impressive $5,000 toward the project with a one day show which goes directly toward the cost of the lift. An additional $1,200 has been raised adding to the project total $6,200. the goal at that time was $22,000.However, it is not enough to complete this endeavor. 

The cost of the lift and finish construction is estimated at $60,000.  The custodian of this historic treasure, The Sequim Museum & Arts Center, is a small non-profit relying on community support to address this immediate need.

The Schoolhouse is self-sustaining, if we can provide access to all potential audience members. It will guarantee the staged events and classes to continue, which will keep the Schoolhouse open.  Otherwise, there is a high risk that the doors on this 121 year old building will close forever.

 The Schoolhouse requires great care to keep it a Historic site and not change the appearance as required by the National Registry of Historic Places.
