In July 2015, new custom cushions were installed on the outdoor chairs and couches.

Spring addition of flower pots on front of bluestone

To reduce the chance of parishioners falling on the corners of pachysandra beds, we added 4 planters with the help of Vasana.

Located just outside of narthex and on either side of Parish hall entrance.

Replaced Glass and new bulbs

The square glass in the lamp behind church was cracked and required a replacment piece cut by Oyster Bay Glass.

As the original LEDs purchased for fixtures are back ordered from China, I opted to go with a slightly different wattage bulb for side entrance to kitchen light fixture.
