Friends and Family of Westchester Church,
This is the first year The Cornerstone was going to be a July/August issue. It will be out around the first of August but that does not get the July happenings to you.
There is so much going on that it was decided to send an email to keep you up to date.
The church is sorely in need of painting, it is peeling and will only continue to deteriorate. Professional painters are in the process of preparing rough estimates with what needs to be done. After these are received, they will be reviewed and an actual Request for Proposal (RFP) in detail will be sent out for the painters to give their final quote. At this time, it appears to be an amount in excess of $20,000 for even a partial job
An anonymous donor has offered to match ALL donations given in the month of July up to $10,000! If you were thinking of helping with this challenge, now is the time as your gift will be doubled during the month of July! Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Even $10.00 becomes a $20.00 gift. Checks may be sent to Jeanne Wickham, 12 Woodbine Road, Colchester, CT 06415 or put them in the collection plate on Sunday. Just put “Paint the Church” in the note section of the church.
Also this month, we are going to have a joint outside service with the Federated Church congregation on July 31, 2016, at 9:30 am. Please note the time is earlier than our regular service. This is a first and it is exciting to share our garden with members of their congregation.
