Week of May 8 of Easter 2014

Dear Friends

In the midst of this nice weather, let me bring you up to speed on some of the recent developments (especially as they relate to our ‘building’):

First, we have concluded our renegotiation of our lease with Knox, accepted the provisions of the orginal leases extensions (at a reduced rate suggested by Knox!) and added a possible 3 more years of options.

Second, Knox has agreed to give us the use of their old ‘junk room’ (the large room next door to the Dwelling Place). This will become a useful multi-purpose medium sized room (almost the same size as our Fellowship Hall), and will allow us to have multiple things going on at any given time.

Third, to prepare the space for use, we have called two Work Days for the next two Saturdays.
This Saturday our plan is to clean out OUR Junk room (off the Ping Pong room) – to toss what needs to be tossed, to decide on what needs to be kept, and then decide how best to store it!). We begin the work at 11 am (after the Leadership Council meeting). If you can lend a hand (and especially if you would like to have dibs on the stuff we choose NOT to keep) we would appreciate it.

Next Saturday, May 17 we plan to have a longer work day to scrape, clean and paint the new space (it has not been used for over 40 years!). This is dependent upon Knox completely clearing the space (something Pete is determined to do asap). We will know by early next week if the ‘day’ is on but wanted to get the word out now and ask you to pencil it in. More on this next week.
Looking forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
