St Paul's Williamsville 1-5-0 Restoration Project

St Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church of Williamsville is 150 years old and as part of our 150th anniversary year we are launching a fundraising effort to make some much needed capital improvements.  As you can imagine our building is in need of work.  St Paul's is a designated historical landmark and as such cannot apply for certain grants to make repairs.    

If we want to make it another 150 years we need the communities help.  Here is a list of areas where we would like to focus the improvements:

- The Sanctuary ceiling (scrape & repaint or replace the tin/aluminum), currently the ceiling is pealing very badly: est. $10,000

- The Sound system (repair or replace), currently the sound system is crackling, popping and fading in and out: est. $2,500

- Windows outside of sanctuary (Plexiglas over original windows, remove originals or put in lighted originals) currently these are leaking water: est. $1,500

- Windows in Education wing (replace), cracked and letting cold air inside: est. $1,500

- Drop off driveway (repaired): est. $2,000

- Other (we have other items identified for repair as well)

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to St Paul's and the community.
