Your vestry has had a very busy summer. In the Spring we hired an energy consulting company to evaluate options to upgrade our aging systems and recommend the best cost and energy-saving solutions. This resulted in a replacement of our south boiler and that work is currently underway. The new boiler will be operational in mid-October, in time for this heating season. We are also improving security and rain drainage by upgrading the windows in the basement to glass blocks. This will mitigate future flooding which has been nearly an annual event when heavy downpours hit us in the summer. With the preschool, we have also upgraded the AC in the basement to prevent recurring humidity and mold. We are blessed with healthy endowments that fund this work. In addition, the Elizabeth Wayne Preschool has secured grants to help finance portions of these upgrades that impact their campus.
