PARKING LOT We hope all are enjoying the repaved parking lot! We have been asked to provide an update on the fundraising efforts for the parking lot. So far a total of $19,420 has been donated toward the cost of resurfacing and striping the lot. The cost was $30,910. The balance was expended from the Capital Improvement fund. If you would like to contribute toward the resurfacing project please put a check in the offering plate. It would be easiest for the offering counters if a separate check was put in an envelope marked Parking Lot, or a sticky note was on the check, noting that it is for the parking lot, and a note in the memo line that it is for the parking lot. Thank you to all who contributed toward the resurfacing project.
