We are deeply grateful to the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust for a grant in the amount of $225,000. The bulk of the money, $200,000, will be used to complete the work of the ceiling restoration project in the sanctuary begun a couple of years ago. The east and north sections of the sanctuary will have the ceilings repaired and the walls in those sections will also be painted. The sanctuary will be closed, except for services, June through August to accommodate this work. Work will commence on the first day of June.
Fifteen thousand dollars of the grant will fund an assessment of the condition of the exterior of the sanctuary. The remaining $10,000 will be used for a Facilities and Maintenance Needs report.
