Spring will soon become  summer and it looks like things are beginning to open up!  We are hoping to open the Thrift shop in the near future but as of this mailing we don’t have a specific date to give you. 

During the closing folks have still been busy!  The front of the Thrift shop building where pastor’s office is looks amazing!  I have continued to sell things out of the barn using the internet. We have sold quite a bit and the barn is looking pretty empty!  Have you been cleaning out your home during this stay at home time?  Do you have some pieces of furniture you would like to donate to the barn?  We are available to meet you — just call and arrange a time to drop off, or we can even pick up if it is impossible for you to bring to the shop. Please call Penny at 508-776-8797.  Connie and I will be meeting in the next week to set up a schedule of workers. We realize some may still choose not to work even with precautions in place,  so we will be looking for folks who are ready and anxious to help us.  Again, please call Connie or Penny if you can help.    Here are two items available for sale now:

An adorable old wash stand that has been refinished and painted white with a towel bar on either side. Only $45; and a tea cart with leaves and drop leaves that open to make a lovely table to serve when you wheel it out to the patio! Again, only $45.

Work Is Finished On Our Historic Fishermen’s House

The Fishermen’s House has turned out beautifully.

The Trustees would now like to form a “painting party” to scrape and paint a few areas and to put a finishing coat of paint on the new, primed pieces of wood that have been installed.  If you are interested in being part of the painting team, contact either Richard Snelley or call the Church Office.  A date will be set and we’ll join together to put the finishing touches on this great project.  When we are painting there will be plenty of space to practice responsible physical distancing.  It should be a fun time together.

As part of the wonderful work that has been done to restore and renew the Fishermen’s House, special thanks are in order for Al Boragine for refurbishing and  repainting the front “Fishermen’s House” sign, as well as Allan Broadhurst and Stanlee Wetzel for restoring and repainting the signs on the side and back.
