THE BAYTOWN SUN Wednesday. De»a»ber 1. 1MB Remodeling Deadline Is Set i - LA PORTE (Sp) — The La Porte Branch of the Houston International Seaman's Center has set a goal to remodel the old La Porte Public Works building and open the center by January 1983. Lou Lawler, a director of the La Porte Branch, said the remodeling of the center is in full swing with the soccer field completed and the building in place. The La Porte Branch conducted a fundraislng International Dinner Nov. 20 to give the project a boost and reportedly raised over $1,000, with donations eonti- . nuing to come in daily. "We have been authorized to spend up to $8,000 to remodel the building but we have set our own limit of $4,000," Mrs. Lawler said. "We feel if we can get people to'donate some of their own time to do the labor we can reach the goal." The money raised from the dinner will go towards the purchase of new doors, siding, and paint for the center. ?*rs. Lawler says th.j La Porte branch is trying to have the facility open by the first of the year in order to serve the crews of the ships that dock at the Barbours Cut Terminal. "We are waiting for an approval from the Port of Houston Authority for the utilities and the telephone sys-tem should be installed within a week," she said. Mrs. Lawler says the La Porte center has been in the makings for three years. "We began as a steering committee and since January of this year we have gone gung-ho ever since." Mrs. Lawler says members of the center are presently putting Christmas boxes for seamen aboard the ships that dock at Barbours Cut. This is the first year the boxes have been distributed and Mrs. Lawler expects the center will distribute about 600 on more than 100 ships by Christmas. "We contact the captain and find out the number of men and women aboard," she said. "We then deliver the boxes and _ they are stored until - Christmas Day." "The boxes (filled with personal items as well as note pads, pencils and tapes) are then distributed and opened by the crews wherever they - are on Christmas.''
