President of the Mory’s Council Christopher Getman ’64 and other Mory’s officials, donning construction hard hats with the Mory’s logo, led members of the media through the Mory’s construction site Wednesday.
While showing off the area in the back of the club where the new bar will go, the floor wet from the rain, Getman explained that the reopening is planned for August, but there is not yet a specific date set. Handsome Dan (aka Sherman), who is owned by Getman, was on hand, and even donned a “Mory’s Matters” baseball cap for photo ops.
Over 3,000 people have donated to Mory’s, and Mory’s Board of Governors Secretary Christin Sandweiss said the Mory’s has raised over $3 million. Getman said the pricetag for the club to completely reopen is $3.1 million.
