You may have noticed some paint pealing close to the wall on the ceiling in the sanctuary, on the external walls of the sanctuary or in the back stairwell going upstairs. These are all signs that some weatherproofing and restoration work needs to be done. The trustees obtained a bid from Mid-Continental Restoration (MCR), the company that repaired the southeast tower after it was struck by lightning. MCR bid for $58,185 for the work. Thinking this was high, the trustees solicited a bid from another company that came in at $131,900. At which point the original bid was readily accepted. If you would like to be a part of the preservation of our historic building, your second mile contribution would be more than welcome. Contributing is as easy as making a note on the offering envelope, or in the memo line of your check.
