Congregational Voting Meeting: Second Vote for Capital Campaign
There will be a congregational meeting on Sunday April 26 after second service (12:45PM) to review and discuss the findings of the feasibility study. This study, which is being conducted by a UUA consultant, will provide us information on our readiness for a campaign, including an estimate of what we can likely raise. There will also be a second vote at the meeting to authorize the capital campaign; this is to provide the congregation an opportunity to indicate their support for the campaign in light of the findings of the feasibility study. A quorum is needed, please plan to attend this important meeting. Absentee ballots are available by contacting the Church Office at [email protected] or 330.673.4247.
Marion Yeagler and Kathy Kerns, Capital Campaign Team co-Chairs
