Approved Minutes: February Vestry Meeting (2/27/2020)

Submitted by Jim Treece.

Meeting Highlights:

After opening with Bible study and prayer, Vestry approved several Buildings & Grounds contracts for: Ram Construction to begin repair work (tuckpointing) of the bell tower; Quinn Evans to be the bell tower’s structural engineer, essentially overseeing Ram’s work; and an upgrade to our security cameras.

  • Vestry approved an Outreach Committee proposal to place a Blessing Box on our property. It will be similar to a Little Free Library, but with daily essentials like toiletries, socks, and easy-to-open shelf-stable food supplied by parishioners and others. The church will pay nothing for its construction.
  • Vestry also discussed preliminary plans for our 175th anniversary celebrations, and ways to raise funds for several major projects, including the bell tower, repairing the sanctuary foundation along the east and west walls, the stormwater runoff project, and potentially improvements to Ledyard Hall and the kitchen.
