Property Team

Every Thursday morning, the Property Team works for 2-3 hours around the grounds of Holy Trinity to spruce it up before our Sunday worship services.  Their usual tasks include  minor building repairs, mowing the grass, indoor cleaning, setting up heavy equipment, and painting.  After finishing the tasks for the day, they meet for 30 minutes for coffee, snacks, and fellowship.  If you are interesting in joining or helping out, contact office@htelc.com

Our current Property Team leader is David Mercer.

I suppose you could say I am "out of pocket", not in the old-school sense of paying property expenses with my own money, but in the more contemporary sense of being unavailable or unreachable. Although, I will, in fact, be unavailable until mid-April when Martha and I return from our winter vacation in Florida, I will certainly be reachable by e-mail and cell phone should the need arise.

One of the benefits of being away for a couple of months is the luxury of stepping back from the day-to-day property issues that arise, and giving some thought to broader matters. I hope to use some of my down time to think about long-term capital and maintenance projects. The normal, routine aspects of property matters tend to get in the way of planning for such things. Some potential projects that come to mind include kitchen and restroom renovations, carpet replacement in some parts of the building, tree trimming, a picnic pavilion, building exterior staining and repair, replacement of the stonework around the building perimeter, etc.  Sometimes it seems there is no end to it. Of course, all of this takes time and money. A plan is the essential first step. One of my favorite questions, however trite, is "How do you eat an elephant?" The answer: "One bite at a time!"  I welcome your thoughts (and dreams) on property projects. If the spirit moves you, share your ideas via dmgr@comcast.net.
