Exciting things are happening as construction on the Marty Einhorn Pavilion at the Sandler Family Campus continues to move forward. The concrete is in, the ceiling fans are on site, and the LED color-changing lights have just been installed.

Named in memory of Marty Einhorn, a beloved leader in both the Jewish and secular Tidewater communities, fundraising for the Pavilion “is approximately halfway to its goal,” says Betty Ann Levin, United Jewish Federation of Tidewater executive vice president/CEO. “It’s been wonderful to see so many of Marty’s friends and colleagues reach out to us to contribute to this facility, which, even before it is fully completed, is being enjoyed by the community.”

“We’re getting a price on patios for each end to make it more of a nice space and create a pathway,” says Glenn Saucier, Sandler Family Campus facility director. “Once we get power to it, we’ll be installing the sound system, and we’ll have Wi-Fi and electrical outlets.”

Wall sconces were just shipped and they’re waiting for the Dectron unit, which also controls the heat for the pool, and the air conditioning and dehumidifying for the building, says Saucier. The pool is temporarily being heated by auxiliary power.

Camp JCC is using the Pavilion in the afternoons two days a week. The Pavilion, however, is not just for camp, as all of the Campus agencies, including Strelitz International Academy, are using the shaded structure for meetings and events. Plus, Saucier notes that the Pavilion is rented for a birthday party in July, and he anticipates many other events will follow.

As for a projected completion date, Saucier says, “Due to materials and labor, we’re hoping for the end of August.”
