Buildings and Grounds Committee, October 2018

We have new curtain panels on six windows in the Sanctuary! Finally completed, this was a truly collaborative building project with many starts and restarts. The purpose of these panels is to reduce the daylight coming toward the projection screen and for candlelight services. We now have six curtain panels, replacing the tattered original four. The windows are also now in better condition, cleaned and recaulked.

Barbara Hilbourn and Lynn Sullivan located the three fabric designs; the Aesthetics Committee, headed by Lynne Cahoon, reviewed and approved them.  Lynn Sullivan did the majority of the sewing with assistance from Barbara, Aileen Hohmann and Ann Harlow. Christina Creveling arranged for cleaning and the required certified fireproofing. Tom Tripp created new hanging rod devices and installed the curtains. Thank you, one and all!

The repairs in the Safir Room are moving along gradually. The Project Oversight Team will report again in next month’s Beacon.
