Meeting started at 7:00 p.m.   All Motions passed unanimously unless noted.

Minutes approved from May meeting

Attendance:  John Lopata, chairman; Dave Koch, Ken Miller, Barry Fisher

The following items are on the back burner until spring:

1) fixing the railing in front of the church

2) step outside of the tower door , Dave and Barry will be contacting Tammy Green about pavers and will finish the project.

4) need to look at the condition of the front doors of the sanctuary and possibly replace.

5) wall along the side walk of the parsonage needs to be addressed

The spot lights that illuminate the stain glass window on the back balcony do not work. This has been for over ten years.  We will address it issue.

Sy will rent  a floor scrubber/buffer to do the dining room floor.

A motion was made by Ken Miller and second by Dave Koch to have Sy purchase concrete, pipe and a chain to close off the back yard parking area from Monday to Sunday Morning to keep people from parking there when it is not church business since there is room on the street during the week.  Motion made by Dave and second by Barry.


 Sy has rebuilt the light fixtures and replaced the bulbs in the gym. Gym is very bright.

The committee has sent out 146 letters to get sponsors and to try to find new foursomes for the golf tournament.  In three weeks we already have 5 sponsors.

The Property Committee is doing a lottery ticket again to raise money for the church.  The Calendar month would be February and will be ready for sale in August.

Sy is going to donate shelving for the tower door hallway to store items for the kitchen.


Sy sent his custodian report. Over the Fourth of July weekend through the 5th.The alarm system has malfunctioned.  A sensor in the elevator room set off the alarm bringing the fire co.  Sy, Otis Elevator and Control Security are continuing to work on the problem. They hope to have it corrected on Thursday, July 6th.

It was noted that there seems to be many children and people in the parsonage yard during the week and on weekends. The question was is the tenant running a daycare from the parsonage and are we responsible should something happen.  Could Bob look into this.

Meeting adjourned at 7:50 p.m.   (Motion Ken & Dave)
