In May, SCC benefited from another successful Properties Workdays Weekend. Successful because the weather was cooperative and there are a significant number of volunteers who reliably appear twice a year to assist with buildings and grounds improvements. The faces may change but there is a consistent willingness of individuals to bring an assigned chore to completion.
Major accomplishments include re-organizing the Brides and Grooms Rooms as well as the “Deacons Kitchen”; completion of the rebuilding of the stairway to the lower lawn; spreading six yards of mulch in areas all over the property; stripping and painting two benches in the courtyard; removing a pile of accumulated junk near the cemetery; re-leveling the stone bench in the courtyard; replacing a window pane and painting three windows outside the lounge; raking the cemetery; installing and sealing most of the air conditioners; rebuilding and mortaring the entrances to the Chapel and Education Wing; two shrubs were planted on the sides of the sign on the corner; renovation of the rental office space has begun and four tiles are being replaced on the second floor of the Education Wing.
