Walter Danley Saves the Day!

Months ago, some of the Plexiglas covers over the stained glass windows in the front of the church had fallen out. It had nothing to do with Superstorm “Sandy”, so we could not hope for storm relief funding to cover the costs. But time was important, as rain water was threatening to get behind the now unprotected stained glass. And water damage in the organ chambers behind these windows was all we needed!

The New Brunswick Fire Department tried to help. They came on several occasions, but could reach only the lower panels. Wiring from the phone poles hindered the employment of a fire engine’s ladder.

Our general contractor did not have a solution. Paul Nulton tried to organize a bucket truck for us, but this fell through – until I shared his idea with the Property Committee and someone there suggested asking our electrician Walter Danley.

Walter came the following day. And a day later, his crew, Rob and Evan, removed fence panels on the Patterson Street side to allow access for their bucket truck. Within a few hours, the story found its happy end. It had kept me concerned for much of the winter. We are blessed to have an electrician, who goes the extra mile to help an old church.

So, if you ever need electric work done at your home, think of Walter and what he has done over the years for our church. His number is 1.800.626.8653.
