In April of 2013 the Capital Projects Committee began the repairs and restoration work designated by the Capital Campaign. We are pleased to announce that the work has been completed on schedule and on budget.
The major projects that were undertaken were the restoration of the exterior of the Parish House in 2014, the restoration of the interior and exterior of the church building in 2015, along with the installation of an elevator providing access to the Chapel Foyer from the Lower Hallway and window replacement in the Parish Office and the Lower Hallway.
This past year, 2016, we replaced the roof over the Family Room and Rectors’ Gallery, added a drainage system including two massive underground cisterns, restored the Circular Drive, built a new plaza in front of the church and, with the help of the Gardening Brigade led by Connie Cowan, Emily Ragsdale, and Emmy Ogden, replanted three areas on campus.
The Capital Campaign raised $8,290,000 for campaign expenditures and $2,000,000 of legacy gifts that will flow into the endowment over time for a total raise of $10,290,000. Of the $8,290,000 available, $313,000 was spent on fundraising expenses, $55,000 has been set aside for interest, $350,000 has been added to the new organ fund, and $7,497,264 has been spent on construction costs. The remaining $74,736 will be used for additional related expenses including reseeding the circle in the Spring.
