Concern was voiced that the roof was leaking and needed to be replaced. Rev Alice: Yes we had some leaking, but the roof was patched – we had the roof inspected as well as assessed by our contractor; while it will need to be replaced, it is not urgent.
Concern was voiced that there was no marketing plan or professional on staff. Rev. Alice: The Center has a marketing person we consult with monthly who does our social media, website, and calendar updates. While the plan needs updating, there is a strategy in place.
