 Out with the Old, In with the New (See the design for the New Sign at Church!)
The old, wooden sign pointing the way for members and visitors to our wonderful campus and house of worship has seen better days.  A new sign for the Maple Street/Anglican Way corner is in the works.  Estimates are being gathered.   A design has been chosen by the Vestry and is available for viewing!  A rough estimate for the sign is $6,000 - $8,000; we will NOT be going back with wood but with a new concrete-type material.  Donations have already been given towards a new sign; approximately $3,400.  If you would like to donate towards the new sign, please be sure to note that on your check i.e. "new Maple Street sign".  There will also be expenses to get the electrical working properly out by the sign.  If you have any questions, please contact me at (225) 405-7704. Your Jr. Warden, Dianne Gill
