For any homeowners among us, the prospect of a leaky roof on our cottage raises consternation (and angst over potential long-term damage to structure, in addition to annoying cosmetic stains and drips all over the place). Like any of our homes, the fabric of St. Timothy’s buildings presents a seemingly relentless (and cyclical) cry for attention. As we near the end of the wonderfully successful and helpful Planting for Tomorrow campaign – that addressed many major maintenance matters around our buildings and grounds – the next cycle of needs is presenting itself.
With the help of ECF consultant, Maurice Seaton, a series of cottage meetings (small group gatherings in homes and/or at St. Tim’s) have been designed to elicit your input and response to some rather large and significant needs that have been identified. A leaky (and LARGE!) roof… three original-equipment air conditioning units that have yet to be replaced (making the rectory’s “new in 1999 furnace” the oldest piece remaining on campus likely to need replacement in the next decade)… decaying fascia and gutters, downspouts on the church & parish hall buildings…and drainage issues… etc.
Please be part of these crucial conversations as we discern our needs for the future of St. Timothy’s! Your additional ideas and thoughts are critical to prioritizing our list of projects.
