The Town Clock CDC has been very busy over the summer and into this Fall season with various plans for “spreading the news” about this important project.
As we reported, previously, the RCA General Synod President Tom Smith mentioned our project in his report. Pastor Hartmut provides a picture of the video clip that was played during the speech. This created much interest in the re-design of our sanctuary, so much so that we will be presenting to the RCA’s Women Ministries Sankofa Event on September 8th; the RCA Today magazine will be featuring our project in their next edition; this article will also appear on their website; the Readington Reformed Church has requested a presentation about Dina Van Bergh and our re-design project (This will take place in the Spring 2014.); and Christ Episcopal Church has invited us to present in October. We are thrilled about the interest and support for our endeavors.
Moreover, we will be embarking on a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo. If you’ve heard of Kickstarter – it’s the same type of online fundraising. We will be hosting an Open House on Tuesday, September 10, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, during which we will have refreshments, of course, but also a laptop set up. Then we will be showing our guests how to log onto Indiegogo and make a donation. Our goal is to raise $ 10,000 in two months through this means. Every person who donates at least $25 will have their name entered on a communal plaque for one of the new apartments that is being built. You are welcome to join us for this event.
Further events are being planned for in October, since it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Most importantly, we will be selling tickets for an Applebee’s Pancake Breakfast on the morning of October 19th. We hope to see you at one of our events!
