Undercroft Renovation Project

The Problem

St. Paul's parish hall, effectively known as the Undercroft, is in great need of an update.  Best estimates have it that the parish hall of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has not had any kind of updates since the 1950’s (we know for sure since at least 1966).  Aside from its extremely outdated appearance, the parish hall has the following problems:
  1. Paneled walls nailed over the room’s original plaster.  Walls are very deteriorated and damaged.

  2. Ceiling has several holes made by animals that at one time infested the building (pest control issues have since been redressed).

  3. Linoleum tile floor is slowly disintegrating, with large gaps between tiles, corners peeling, etc.

  4. Electrical outlets are not grounded and are unsafe.

  5. There is likely no insulation.

The Plan

The congregation and vestry of St. Paul's have approved plans to raise funds to renovate the room.  We will be launching a capital campaign in the Spring of 2021 to finance the renovations.
