Junior Warden....again?

I'm baaaccckkk.....

There was recently a change in Vestry lineup with a resignation, leaving the Junior Warden role vacant.  Given how close we are to the next annual meeting, it was decided not to replace the empty Vestry seat until the 2019 Annual Meeting, when a nominee can be elected to fill the rest of that term (2 year term, ending in the 2021 Annual Meeting). 

I thought the easiest way to get an experienced person into that position during the interim was to volunteer to fill in.  I have experience with the role, having served in that capacity in 2015 and 2016.  The Vestry agreed and effective as of the September Vestry meeting, I was appointed your Junior Warden.  This appointment is only temporary and will end with the Annual Meeting in 2019.

I am very open to any needs you see we may have in building maintenance and upgrades.  Some things are very obvious and I'm trying to hit the ground running:

  1. The water wall is allowing water to drip down the "dry side" of the wall.
  2. The lights in the tower have all stopped working.
  3. Numerous lights in the building, beyond reach of a ladder, need replacing.
  4. The parking lot is in need of repair and will only get worse the longer we wait.

These are some of the major issues, and in these cases we are already moving on ways to mitigate them:

  1.  H20Walls is being contacted regarding the water wall.
  2. I'm trying to find the power source for the tower lights.  It is not really credible to believe all the bulbs failed at the same time.
  3. We are contacting an electrician to deal with bulb and ballast replacements.  This is a yearly service.
  4. To do the parking lot correctly, we are having an engineer look at the design and water movement of the lot to determine the best solution.  Repairs may not happen this year as winter is rapidly approaching!

If you notice something you think needs attention, it is generally not the best idea to just pull me over and show or tell me.  I have so much going on it may very well just shoot in one ear and out the other.  It's best to write it out for me - and for that, email or web site notices are the best.

There is a way to report building and grounds concerns from out web site by clicking on the "Maintenance requests" link located in the Links box on every page.  Those notices are sent directly to me and I can track them that way.  You can also email me by clicking bryan [dot] irvine [at] stdavidschurch [dot] com (HERE).


I appreciate all the trust that is being given me in this service.  I look forward to serving all of you over the next four months!
