Landscape Project and Building Upkeep
Landscape Project - Phase II
The landscaping design developed with HGA, the architectural firm we used for our construction project, included planting shrubs and perennials which could not be funded under the construction project budget. We hope to complete the landscaping in late May or early June, with funding to come from individual and family gifts to purchase shrubs and perennials.
This is your opportunity to make a donation toward the continued greening of our facility by purchasing evergreen and deciduous shrubs, as well as perennials for our garden.
Spring Clean Up
The Facilities Committee is organizing a spring clean-up at Gloria Dei on Saturday, June 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed for a variety of projects both indoors and out planned on that day.
Sign up here.
The Facilities Committee will plan the projects based on the number of people willing to volunteer.
Projects around the building
At the February annual meeting, we approved a capital budget that included $110,000 for repairs, renovations and upgrades to our building, and anticipated four projects with an additional amount available for unanticipated repairs. The four projects are:
• Complete repairs to the steeple. The contract has been signed, and repairs should begin late spring or early summer.
• Paint exterior trim and dentils around the sanctuary. We are in process of getting bids on the project, and anticipate work will be done this summer or early fall.
• Repair plaster in the chapel and sanctuary. A contract should be signed by the end of April, and repairs will take place after that point.
• Install handicap access door buttons by the north and south parking lot doors. Bids will be refreshed and work should be completed late summer or early fall.
