Flocknote is new communication service we are using to send out emails and texts. You should have gotten an email about the March LIFE event, Flocknote and some Lenten resources this past week. If you did not get an email this past week, we do not have your correct email. Help us by updating your information. Sign up on your own by texting SVDPKS to 84576. You will be sent a link that allows you to register and decide for yourself whether you want to receive information by email or text. Your also can call the office to give us this information. We will not be sending out multiple emails each month, but we want to be able to send you important information. You will be able to stop notifications at any time. We also will be able to use this information for groups to communicate within their members.
The Annual Fund this year will tackle some large and small projects that have been on the back burner for a few years since we are now free of debt. The biggest project will be a Universal Access Family Restroom. It will be located near the current restrooms where the water fountain currently sits. A Universal Access Family Restroom solves 2 problems. First it creates a handicapped accessible restroom on the main floor that is wheelchair friendly. Secondly, it will allow for someone to care for their handicapped spouse without any embarrassment as well as allow for parents to care for children of the opposite sex. Finally, placing it by the main hallway would allow it to serve the whole main floor.
Other projects include:
Replacement of windows in the offices;
Replacement of our phone system that is now 25 years old;
Creating an HVAC Replacement Contingency fund for the aging equipment in the south part of the building;
Providing materials to leverage our labor to make other improvements throughout the building.
Help us care for our building and all who use our building. Send your gift or pledge in the next couple of weeks.
