I enjoyed Fr. Rodger Baumann’s homily on patience last weekend. I certainly need patience in my work, as some facilities projects can take a long time to plan and execute. Case in point: we began the school roof replacement project over a year ago.
After such a long process, I was pleased to hear the roofing company’s crane this past week. The crane was used to lift materials to the school roof. Workers—up to 14 at some points—climbed a very long ladder to get up there. Oh—the first thing the crane lifted last week? A Porta-Potty.
It’s Clean Out Time
We’ve scheduled this coming Wednesday (Aug. 2) and Thursday (Aug. 3) mornings to clean out things from the school building. If you’re free at 9am on either or both of those days, please join us! (School building curiosity seekers are welcome on condition you help empty the old locker rooms off stage left!)
If you work during the week, know that we’ll have some Saturday morning opportunities coming up in the next couple of months. There’s plenty to clean out in the Parish Center and church building as well. If you’re familiar with Facebook Marketplace, let Angela and me know. We want to avoid putting things in landfills.
Solar Project Update
I’ve met again with representatives from Apadana Technologies, the company that will be replacing our main electric panel in a few months. We’re also planning for a solar installation by Apadana. With the school roof replaced, it’ll be a great spot to install panels. Good for the earth and good for our bottom line!
Thank you for your support, and have a great week!
