Extreme Team Day 1: Setting the foundations for the project at the Carl Maxey Center

SPOKANE, Wash. — Mark Peterson and the 4 News Now Extreme Team are back in action, and this project is taking on a special significance for Mark.

He is leading the charge in renovating the Carl Maxey Center in East Spokane.

The founder of the Carl Maxey Center, Sandy Williams, was killed last month in a plane crash near Whidbey Island.

She and Mark were already in the process of planning the renovation.

On Monday, crews began prepping by painting walls, installing new electrical wiring and plumbing, and laying concrete.

The focal point of the renovation will be a library named in honor of Williams.

Follow along Mark’s progress before the big reveal!
