THE NEW SCHOOL BUILDING COMMITTEE met to organize on August 27. Members are Dan Arndt (Chairman), Dylan Blount, Dale Hesselberg, Chad Horstman, Ben Hoth, Mark Larson, and Roger Lund. All members of our congregation are considered advisory to this committee and are invited to offer their ongoing input to these committee members. No decision by the voters assembly has yet been made regarding this project. Your questions and your input are welcome. The members of the committee themselves are researching site preparation, preliminary layouts, financing, congregational support level, etc. Our statement of fund balances at the end of July showed $100,752.43 in the New School Fund and approximately $270,000.00 in undesignated bequest funds. At some point down the road, a congregational information and discussion meeting will be held.
