CAPITAL CAMPAIGN REPORT
Much of our work over the last couple of months has been in preparation for upcoming projects. The committee interviewed three architectural firms and has chosen one to begin "designing" the new lift and the handicap accessible bathrooms. We should receive those drawings in the next two weeks. In the meantime, a new fire alarm system has been installed and approved by the Avon Fire Department. Valley Landscape has installed the new sidewalks by the office and nursery school entrances. In addition, we are working with Connecticut Lighting on the selection of lights to illuminate the entrances and the parking lot. Quotes are being secured for the replacement of the front lawn sign; unfortunately, the sign will need to be completely replaced due to its overall condition. We are continuing to work on small landscaping projects with the help of some very dedicated members. At our annual meeting in June, we hope to supply everyone with a complete update of our projects, along with drawings and a timeline for the lift project.We started off 2012 by conducting a very successful capital campaign. Over one third of our church family participated as volunteers and we received pledges of over $1,000,000. The donations received this year have allowed us to do the first phase of our driveway repaving, reroof the parish house, and install a new alarm system. In order to complete the remainder of our projects, and to build up funds for future projects, we need to receive the remainder of our pledged funds as soon as possible. If you have not already done so, we ask that you fulfill the 2012 portion of your Capital Campaign pledge. You may also want to look at your 2012 and 2013 tax situation and fulfill your 2013 pledge in 2012. We greatly appreciate your pledges and donations. It has allowed us to shore up our physical facilities and to build a strong foundation upon which can to do God's work. Thank you.
