LEXINGTON FRIENDS TO RENOVATE THEIR MEETINGHOUSE
Posted 03/26/2013 by
Lexington Friends are pleased and proud to announce that at a called meeting for business on March 24, our meeting approved proceeding with the renovation of our meetinghouse! Itís been a long, careful, and deliberative process developing the renovation design, raising funds, and seeking financing to supplement what we raised. We are looking forward to having a refurbished building that is more environmentally sustainable. We anticipate that we will qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
We hope that the construction can begin in April or May, and we anticipate it will take about a year for completion. During that time we will hold worship and First Day School on our regular schedule at Lexington Christian Academy, 450 W. Reynolds Road, in south Lexington, across from the Meijerís shopping center.
We thank all who have contributed their time and treasure to help us realize this dream, and we look forward to welcoming OVYM Friends to our modern, clean, and green meetinghouse!
