Property Team Annual Report January 2011
Team Leader - Mike Bauml
I would like to thank all you helped out the property team in the past year. Special thanks go out to Dennis Dandeles, who has been my go to guy. Whatever is needed Dennis steps in and takes care of it. Also special thanks go out to George Evangelopoulos who has been indispensible with his advice and aid in securing contractors and monitoring them re-guarding various projects.
I would also like to thank those you come out for the work days that we have from time to time. Their efforts allow us to not have to pay someone to do these jobs for us. Our next cleanup day will be in the spring to get the building and grounds prepared for Pascha. Please take the time this year to help. It can be a very rewarding experience.
HALL USAGE: The fellowship hall is available for use by parish members for different functions. It can be reserved by contacting Mike Bauml and is subject to certain rules and feast days and the approval of Father Andrew. Donations for the use are appropriate and are at the discretion of the individual. These funds go back into the property fund and allow us to further improve the property.
FINANCIAL STATUS: Once again the parish has voted to allow the funds for the prepayment for the church bonds to be made available for use to complete various projects. This allows us to continue to move forward in maintaining and improving the building and grounds.
TEAM PROJECTS COMPLETED
1. The classrooms were painted and murals for the walls were done. Also new furniture was purchased for some of the classrooms using the property budget.
FUTURE TEAM PROJECTS:
The following list of projects are under consideration and if and when they get done will depend in large part on the availability of funds. If you have expertise and can help with any of these or if one of them is something you can contribute funds to; please let use know.
The Prayer Shire under construction on the west side of the building has been delayed due to permit problems. A permit for approximately 500.00 was obtained and we will move to completion.
1. A roll down window will be installed in kitchen window.
This looks to be a very busy year and exciting year St. Luke’s so please be patient with us during the construction phases and continue and if possible increase your support of the property collections. Anyone who has expertise in any of these areas or wishes to make a specific monetary contribution please contact Father Andrew or myself.
ISSUES TO BE RESOLVED:
I look forward to an exciting year at St. Luke’s and hope and pray that we can accomplish the goals that we have set forth for ourselves. With God’s help and your support I feel confident that we can.
Yours in Christ, Mike Bauml
