Parish Meeting on Sunday!

Sunday, Mar. 21 - 11:30

We're at an important juncture in refitting our buildings. The Facilities Committee has been working with Gary Corey of Centerline Architects in Bennington to envision better ways of utilizing our spaces. A new concept is emerging that brings our longed-for new kitchen tantalizingly within reach rather than a distant dream.

The Committee has reported to Vestry, and together with Vestry invites all parishioners to attend a meeting Sunday, March 21 at 11:30 in order to:
- Review the goals and status of the Campaign for St. John's

- Revisit the Preservation Project and hear the latest about the
structural repair and refinishing of the Lower Room

- Learn about a possible new plan for reconfiguring the spaces
adjacent to the Lower Room, including a new kitchen.

The Facilities Committee and Vestry members are eager to hear
from you as we discern our best options in realizing the
goals of the Campaign for St. John's.
