  • This year we are continuing the process of renovating Buckley Hall with a goal of updating the sound and lighting systems. I’m sure you’ve all had the chance to experience the muffled voices during trivia night or during one of our kids plays. Even at the Big Red Auction we needed to rent equipment in order to have decent sound. With your help we will be able to work with sound and stage specialists to begin updating and repairing these systems so Buckley Hall can be an even greater asset.
