"Fund A Square" Roof Project Finance Committee Announces H&T Roofing has finished the roof!
"The Roof Campaign started needing nearly $60,000.
We are happy today to say we have only $8,000.00 yet to raise from 12 remaining squares."
H&T Roofing completed the roof project on July 22, 2017 on the Harbor Springs UMC at the Main & Garner Streets side of the building. Last week they finished the steeple section of the roof. David Cummings--member--finance & trustee of the church captured a heavenly photo of the worker painting the cross with a brush in one hand & holding on tightly with the other to give it its new coat of fresh white paint--a fitting finish!
The “Fund-A-Square” Roof Project started with the banner (pictured at the left here) designed by Marga Eickholt, member of Alanson UMC & Marion Kuebler, Music Director at both HSUMC and Alanson. Kim from Ink Spot Printing put the logo on a banner as a donation to get us started. The banner hung all summer on the Main Street front of the church and folks did see it and respond with much giving. The banner was only removed as it began to fade in the sun.
For those who do not remember, the roof work started last spring on the east side of the building and finishing over the Memorial Room right before the 4th of July last year. The campaign started well before the work began. H&T Roofing worked around agreeable weather and with the city planner to keep us within the ordinances. Great job!
Carolyn Sandford, Chair of Finance Committee, has headed up the project from its start and kept it on track with help from Mary & Kurt Spanburg, and David Cummings. The committee put out the message “Keep Us Covered” and many, many dear friends of our church heeded the call. We started with 72 squares on the roof and the countdown began.
We could not have done this roof project without the generous donations of friends, family, & members who care so deeply about our mission to maintain this beautiful place of worship. This church remains in honor of those who have come to worship before us; for us who worship today; and for those who will be here to worship in the future.
We have a "Memorial Record Book" of all the names who have given to this building fund. The book is kept at the front curved wall in the Narthex on the cabinet between the two green pews. It will be updated with lots of photos of the church before and after the roof project. We invite you to come to our worship service on Sundays at 11:00 A.M. We would be glad to show you the book! When the service is over we can go see the new roof!
