Please join us tomorrow, Monday, February 13, from 4:00 to 5:30 in the Social Hall to celebrate the building’s progress and receive a tour of our new sanctuary. You’ll also have the opportunity to sign a piece of drywall that will be installed in our new sanctuary. Peter Ewers and Ann Ormsby from our architectural firm will be there, along with members of our project team from Pinkard Construction and the Building Expansion Team. This is a great chance to get a feel for the new space and have all your questions answered. Even if you don’t want to take a tour, there will be things to see and people to talk to.
If you opt for a tour, Pinkard will provide hard hats, glasses, and safety vests. Dress for the weather, we have exterior walls and a roof, but it still can be chilly. No open-toed shoes, sensible heels, and be aware that you will probably have to walk on dirt or mud. Children are welcome at the event, but no one under 16 is permitted on the construction site. The contractor can only accommodate 20 people at a time, so we will try to squeeze in as many tours as we can to ensure that everyone who wants to can participate.
In other building news, the construction site is getting very busy, with more trades coming in to do their tasks. We have roofers, plumbers, electricians, and carpenters all at work. Our contractor always makes safety the top priority, which is even more essential during this busy phase.
The work is very visible right now. If you take the opportunity to drive down Drake, there is more and more to see every day.
We hope to see many of you at our event on Monday.
In partnership and with excitement,
The Building Expansion Team
Chris Bettlach, Jerry Hanley, Peg MacMorris, and Margaret Cottam
