UP ON THE ROOFTOP
Last week, Englund Roofing began needed maintenance on the roofs of our Parish Center (PC). During the bidding process, their inspectors praised whoever installed the PC roof years ago. That was nice to hear. Because of that past work of good quality, Englund recommended only maintenance work, e.g., caulking and scupper repair. That saves us money, compared to replacing the roofs.
In addition to the PC roof work, Englund will replace the scupper on the sloped part of the church roof (on the parking lot side). They’ll also install a new downspout there. That should stop the water damage to the brick in that area.
As for the occasional leaks in the main church roof—replaced in 2019—we’ve had inspection and repair techs from Fischer Roofing come out several times. I believe they’ve made progress in plugging leaks, but it’s hard to know for sure until after the next heavy rain. If you see leaks, please let me know.
DOWN IN THE KITCHEN
Our Social Hall kitchen is clean now, thanks to Metro Cleaning Services during the week of September 12. (See pictures elsewhere in this bulletin.) We may now use the kitchen without fear of the grease-laden fan at one end. And it was good to get rid of non-functioning equipment and expired food.
Because of hours of volunteer work to move things out of the kitchen before cleaning started, the Metro crew was able to work more quickly. I want to thank helpers Tom Kegler, Dave Haley, Becky Montgomery, two Casa residents, and two members of People of Praise. Special thanks to Tom and Dave for helping move everything back into the kitchen after the Metro crew finished.
We’ll now replace or update the old signs, and clean individual pieces of equipment. I’m looking for volunteers to help with these projects. (Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?)
Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!
