“Its an “Ask Ahriana” Sunday! 

Bring your questions about Unity, Spirituality, and our Spiritual Center.

From the Unity Board President:

The Fellowship Hall (FH) Dreamers committee started last fall as a board appointed committee. Its charge was to plan for making changes to the FH so that it could be more useful to the church and inviting for rentals. The Committee members included Christine Ahlen, our architect and the engine for this project! Steve Smith, Pat Christianson and Patricia Yeager were also members. Other people who contributed to the planning included Mary Hobratschk and Scott Lawless. 

We had four goals:

1. Clean out every corner and drawer in the church. Many volunteers helped with that Project in February - a great and difficult experience of letting go of stuff!

2. Make the former bookstore into a space for our library and small group meetings. (Multipurpose Room #1)

3. Remodel the administrative office at the front entrance.

4. Install acoustic tiles to impact the sound quality of the FH

Coming Soon:

1.Clean up and painting of Multipurpose Room #2

2.Refurbish the FH with electricity, drywall, paint, lighting and performance area on the north side of the hall. Kitchen updates too.

The first four items are complete or nearly complete. More work on the acoustics are being considered. Recently, the Dreamers committee provided the Board with three options to make the FH more attractive and user friendly.  These recommendations run from $5,000 to $20,000 or more. The recommendations and the options can be found with the June minutes on our website. For now, the committee rests until the Board decides what to do and we raise the money. 

So many people made this possible. So far, we have spent less than $5,000, mainly because of volunteers. We could not have done this without the guidance and energy of Christine Ahlen. 

Pat Christianson provided wisdom, knowledge and muscle power as did Steve Smith. Mary Hobratshck provided creative ideas for the space design and kitchen. Scott Lawless designed, constructed and installed the acoustic tiles on the FH walls. He could not have done this without the help of Debbie Lacey, Beth Petitt-Willis, and Patricia Yeager (Power tools are us!). Mike Malivuk donated and finished the butcher block counters in the Multipurpose Room #1. Phyllis Cahill helped put furniture together. Christine and Yo'Lauder designed the administrator office refresh. Mark Platten painted the administrator office and Tito Natividad constructed the desks and put everything into place.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed in any way!
