#1 WISH: MEMBERS

SAVINGS AND/OR ENDOWMENT: During the 2009-2010 operating year we ran out of basic operating money. We were at least $6000 short and had to scramble and beg for money.  It is essential that we do something differently from now on so that does not happen again. We wish for someone to spearhead this project and help by focusing on fundraising so that we can have a savings and/or an endowment fund.

PAINT WINDOWS ON SOUTH AND CLASSROOMS – GRAND TOTAL:

The inside windows on the south side of the building are peeling and cracking and need to be weather-proofed. Also, both classrooms need painting.

GRAND TOTAL for Painting : $1000.00 PLUS cost of paint and materials

DIVIDER: The big wooden divider doors in the Oneg Shabbat room need to be replaced. We are now searching for a viable alternative. Cost unknown at this time.

REPLACE SUKKAH: it is rotting and falling apart

REPLACE SIDEWALK that is parallel to building that is bowing and cracking and is a safety hazard.

REPLACE DROP CEILING IN ONEG SHABBAT ROOM. One quote so far – $2000-3000.00

REPLACE STOVE/OVEN and FRIDGE: The current appliances are ancient and failing.

MOLD: Look into mold control.

LAWN CARE – If we had some money for this we could maintain the gardens. We need to hire someone to weed occasionally every year and rake leaves.

CARPET will need to be replaced in the sanctuary in the next year or so.
