Under Old Business The following items are on the front burner and will be completed when money is available:

  1. the railing in front of the church will be replaced on Wednesday, August 14, 2019---Ted is getting the fittings and Dave is getting the anchors
  2. There is a need to replace the front doors of the sanctuary. Barry has been looking for companies that can do the job. He was asked to get three quotes because of the expected cost of the project. Denny Blocker is also looking into this.
  3. The wall along the sidewalk of the parsonage is being taken care of by Denny.

Questions arose about the new message board. Property has not been contacted about this project. Will property have to take care of this after it is installed??? It is should be installed late summer.

The AC for the dining room has been installed and is working fine. Some people complain it is too cold. The system has been fixed three times already.

Ted checked with HT Lyons to see if there is a maintenance contract that we can get for the boilers. There cost would be $2758 a year. That is just for the service call. We would like to look elsewhere for some other company.

Barry is going to contact Masonry Preservation Service from Bloomsburg to look at the stonework where it seems to leak over Derr Hall

Elderhorst has started replacing the system that works the bells in the tower. Hopefully they will be on soon.

The old handicap door does not close when opened. The door needs to be replaced. Barry got one donated and just needs to be installed. The committee will set a date to do the work on the old handicap door and the gym door.

The Ac company was asked to work up a quote for the auditorium to see if it would be feasible to put a unit in there. We are waiting to hear from them.

Meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m. by Dave and second by Ted.

Next meeting will be Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
