Saturday, August 18, 2001 Work Day

Thanks to David Reeves for the photos and summary information for this day as I was only there for a part of the morning work.

Much progress was made on the sprinkler system with the island "garden" areas being mostly backfilled over the pipe in place. The parts were inventoried and separated into units for each valve box to be installed next weekend. Most of the lines with sprinkler heads are in place. (Mike Van Voorhis finished two additional lines Sunday afternoon).

Thanks to all who participated. I think there were about 20 there including those who prepared the great lunch. (Ed. I'm going to thank the lunch group personally! Peggy Lindsay for sandwiches & cookies, Wendy Haden for sandwiches and Lorraine Wilkinson for drinks.) About 5 of the participants were from outside our congregation which shows good community support. I will leave you to draw your own conclusions about what is going on in the photos which are all attached. By the way this report and the photos are all being placed on the church web site and often Dave has reworked the photos so they take less space and illustrate better how things relate over there. 

Next weekend needs to see most of the sprinkler work finished because the week after that, Labor Day weekend, we should be ready to start with the exterior rock installation. The big day for rock will be September 8 when we will need a large crew.

The worship group and the interior color selectors made some final decisions about the finish of the front wall of the sanctuary area, the carpet color and wall paper, and the wall tile and grout for the rest rooms. We confirmed on Monday that the carpet color can be changed without additional cost so all systems are go toward completion.
