Please come and take a look at a big, new change on the church campus. Along Summit Street to the east of the classrooms, 1700 square feet of old grass and weeds was removed and synthetic turf was installed. Funds for this were provided by a donor. Trustees Jim Soileau and Earl Donnels oversaw the removal and installation by Hacienda Del Ray Landscaping of Prescott Valley. The new synthetic turf is water permeable which will allow rainwater to percolate into the ground to recharge the aquifer. We are applying to the City of Prescott for a $370 credit on the water bill for conversion of the turf lawn to a water saving landscape. As good stewards of the earth, we hope this is a welcoming, inviting area for children, families and adults of all ages. Please come take a look, walk and play on it and sit in the shade and marvel at God's landscape. The view of Prescott is amazing from here.
Also, the interiors of Esther Hall and the Chapel were repainted this week by Four Season Painting Service to clean and brighten the area. This area gets lots of use by groups such as the Boy Scouts and is used weekly for the Coffee Fellowship. Trustee Deb Dorrell oversaw this contract. Another recent major repair was the replacement of the hot water heater/boiler in the kitchen by Yavapai Mechanical LLC.
New 5-inch rain gutters and stair safety hand rails were installed outside Esther Hall and the Douglas Room. The Trustees have been busy with touch-up painting and maintaining landscaping. New window coverings were installed on the interior Agape Hall doors. Carpets were cleaned in the reception area and the office. More carpets are scheduled to be cleaned soon.
Another large recent maintenance item that you may have noticed was Eyemark LLC of Prescott Valley resurfaced and re-striped the parking lot. Also, repairs were made to the fire alarm system, evaporative coolers and air-conditioning units. The Trustees try to use local contractors where possible to invest in our community. There are many loving hands working to keep our campus inviting and safe.
