Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
There remains much to do at our little chapel on the hill, and I wish to propose that we get together once more, this Saturday, September 20th, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, to continue doing what we can to fix things up while we still have the weather. Last week, a great deal was done to clear things up in the holly grove. Many of the vines which have imprisoned the trees were removed, but a lot remain. At the same time, there are still roots in the ground beneath, and already they are putting up new growth. So there is cutting and digging to be done. I am also awaiting a historic area work permit approval for foundation drainage improvements at the northeast corner of the church, and if it has been obtained by Saturday, there will be digging there as well. So bring shovels if you have them. There is also interior work and general grounds cleanup to be done, as well. And much fellowship.
As of now, we stand at 85% of our in-kind obligation for our portion of the Historic Preservation Grant. Congratulations to everyone who has gotten us so far! Based on our success this year, we are already at work on the application for next year's grant. More news on that as it happens, but in the meantime, please join us in our push over the top! And thank you, as always, for your hard work and prayers,
