Small steps seems to be the course we are taking with the plans for the re-design project of the sanctuary.
The State Historic Preservation Office performed a site visit and reviewed with the Town Clock CDC and the Development Team the present designs of Dina’s Dwellings. The next steps are hiring an archeologist to perform some preliminary excavations around the back of the sanctuary building. This once again delays our timeline, although we are in good hope of moving forward.
Furthermore, as I have moved into the position of Executive Director of the Project, Sherri Novack has been elected Board President. We are glad to have her in this position and to have Sherri’s particular marketing skills come to good use.
As the Project continues, the Board realized the need to expand Board members with people of particular expertise. Thus, Mary Peppe, the Manager of the Amboy Bank here in New Brunswick was invited to join. Our Treasurer is looking forward to sharing some of the financial responsibilities with Mary. Further invites are being extended as we look to build greater relationships with our community.
And, John Keller’s wonderful colleagues will be treating us with a special performance reading on Saturday, November 17th at 6:00 pm. All proceeds are to help create Dina’s Dwellings.
