Items in the Campaign Case still to be completed
Lower level Flooring Replacement
Over the summer we will begin to work on necessary HVAC replacements in the main building. Once all of the areas are identified and specific costs associated, we will proceed to the next items on our list. We fully intend to complete these projects as outlined in our case statement. As with all things some modification may be necessary in order to spend the remaining funds wisely and still accomplish our goals.
We still have an outstanding balance for DSA 2016 which will have to be paid by June 30, 2017. If everyone fulfills their DSA pledge our shortfall will still be approximately $60,000.00 which will have to be satisfied.
I want to again express my appreciation for all the people of St. John Neumann Parish and for your outstanding witness to Christian Stewardship.
