This major project is progressing according to schedule. The tower roof and four supporting columns have already been taken down.
In May, the many crumbling bricks in the lower portico will be replaced. When that step is completed, the shingles on the lower southwest-facing roof section facing Orleans Blvd will be replaced.
The total cost of the tower takedown project is $85,000. Fundraising to pay for the project is ongoing. A total of $45,000 was raised previously. The current “40 in 40” initiative to raise the remaining $40,000 is continuing. Many people have already contributed, and almost $28,000 has been raised so far, leaving $12,000 to come.
Please contribute to this project as you are able. One way to give is through a donation either using the Tower Project envelopes located in the pews or through the various methods listed here: http://orleansunitedchurch.com/donate/
