When Rabbi Shildkraurt z"l came to serve as the full-time Rav for this local Synagogue, he requested from the President and the board members of the Congregation, to build him a Mikveh, which was built in his house (which is these days a pizza shop).
He was accompanied by The Tzehlimer Rav, Harav Levi Yitzchok Greenwald, zt”l (http://www.hamodia.com/inthepaper.cfm?ArticleID=549), when he built the Mikveh, along with the students/bochurim of the Tzehlimer Yeshiva, The Tzehlimer Rav was sending his students/bochurim for Minyan for the Shabbat.
