2018 Annual Report for the Parish Hall Renovation Project

Excellent progress was made in 2018 on the renovation of St. John’s Parish Hall. After completion of the back of the education wing in 2017 (Phase 1), the committee hoped that for Phase 2, we could at a minimum complete covering the courtyard in 2018. Thanks to, approval by the vestry to use the generous bequests from the estates of Richard Mendenhall and Ruth Duncan, the support of our contractor and the continuing financial support of the parish family, we were able to go beyond our initial goal. As of the end of 2018, the courtyard covering, two beautiful handicap accessible restrooms, a new nursery, and a multifunction room (1702 Annex) adjacent to the James/McKean Hall were all completed. The only remaining portion of Phase 2 is the construction of the dishwashing room across from the kitchen. This will be completed as funds become available. A complete financial summary of the Parish Hall Renovation Project to date is shown below.

As soon as Phase 2 is completed and paid for, we hope to start on Phase 3. This will include, new energy efficient windows along the administrative offices, a handicap accessible walkway along that portion of the building, an attractive and functional reception area to the Parish Hall and a realignment of the offices to provide better space utilization and allow more privacy for the rector’s office.
The Capital Campaign Committee appreciates the ongoing support of the vestry and the parish family.

The generous support of the parish family has been tremendous. As we move forward ask for the following:

1. Everyone who has made a multi-year pledge for this project, please make sure your pledge is paid up fully through this year. If you are not sure about this, please contact Paul Costello (email – pncostello@comcast.net or telephone 610-793-1620).

2. If you have made a pledge for 2019, please consider paying that in the 1st Q, If you can do that, it would be greatly appreciated.

3. If you have not made a contribution to this project yet, please consider doing so now. We currently have about 75 % of our parish family donating to this project. We need 100% participation. If you haven’t made a donation, please do it now no matter what amount you can afford.

4. If you made a donation early on to this project, but have not donated recently, please consider if you can make another donation now.
We know we are asking a lot of our parish family. Also, please don’t forget your yearly pledge for our operating budget. While we are excited about our building program, we still need to pay our priests and keep the lights on.

Please let one of us know if you have any questions.

Your Capital Campaign Committee,

Rocky Bassick, Paul Costello, Marti Keenan, Tracey Payne, Paul Pearlman, John Sorensen,
