November 12th update

Delivered by Lynn Oliver

I have 2 Board announcements this morning

·         Staffing update

·         Information on our new location

1)  With our move to the Chapel at St. Matthews the board has been assessing our needs going forward.  We have learned that St. Matthews has a third party cleaning company that they use and that has lead us to make the very difficult decision that we will no longer require the services of our hardworking Robert after Dec 31, 2017.  Robert has been made aware of this. Robert is not a big fan of being the center of attention and has asked that we refrain from a large Sunday recognition but we will find a way to thank him for all he has done for us for the last 10 years.

2)  I want to share highlight of good news on the transformation of St. Matthews Chapel to Trinity on Church.

o    All painting will be completed by this coming Wednesday November 15th

o    All electrical upgrades are now complete

o    Lighting in the choir/chancel area of the chapel is being upgraded and repositioned to illuminate the area more effectively
