Property Team Report July 2012

We have had a quite dry season so far and lawn maintenance has been unnecessary. The high temperatures have prevented most outside work so the focus has been on inside tasks.

We have accomplished the following:

  • The storage room to the south of the Baptistry has been cleaned, painted and re-arranged.
  • New curtains and rods have been installed in the north classrooms.
  • We thank all those who work to keep the building clean and keep the decorations current for season and coordinated with the church liturgical calendar.  

Some items we would like to accomplish are as follows:

  • Remove and cap off the inoperative drinking fountain in the fellowship hall.
  • Repair & repaint the walls and ceiling of the overflow room and repair the door leading to the hallway.
  • Replace some light switches that are worn and problematic at times.
  • Replace heating pipe supports above the ceiling in front of the kitchen.
  • Trim branches rubbing on the roof at front of building.
  • Replace rotting wood fascia at east side of sanctuary and repaint.
  • Replace deteriorated door panels at south wall of sanctuary.

We will also need some people to run the snow blower and salt the walks during and/or after a snow storm to ensure we comply with the City ordinances and make it safe for people to access the building.

If you are willing to give of your time and talent talk with David Titter and we will all enjoy the results.
