For over a year now renovations have been underway at the Rockfish Valley Community Center in Afton. The former elementary school is now home to several businesses and a meeting place for monthly and annual events. The most recent renovations have been taking place with the old auditorium floor in the main part of the building.

Refinishing the floors was no easy process. And time consuming.

Over a period of five days workers sanded then refinished the old floors dating back to 1938 inside the RVCC auditorium.

The money to refinish the floors was raised during a Floor Us campaign beginning in the fall of 2012 and ending that December.
