Hours Update: Due to ongoing repairs to our water lines undertaken by the church, the PTLL will be closed for daytime hours on Wednesday March 22 through Thursday March 23. We intend to be open for evening hours on Thursday. We are tenants in the space, and are making information known as soon as we are updated on work progress. According to the contractor, after this phase of work there should be no furhter need to shut off the water lines. We apologize for the inconvenience, and look forward to returning to our regular schedule.
