    All the above gives you an excellent understanding of all that was accomplished in the winter and spring of 2017.  Those who were able to be on site during the summer experienced the wonderful new kitchen/dining room.  The Elevator helped many leisurely move in and out of the upper stories.  If you have not been on site since this work was completed plan to join us next summer.
   We have receive a wonderful bequest from Alice Filkins, a former registrar.  Alice for many years used notecards with all our names to select the "proper" room for each of us.  The Board of Directors has set aside $20,000 as a challenge grant for new gifts to the 20/20 campaign.   All new gifts, up to $20,000, will be matched dollar for dollar.  IN addition some of Alice's bequest will help reconstruct the railings at the Reform House.  Thank you Alice
  In the fall of 2017 we are addressing the railings and fire escape of the Reformed Church House.  There is much decay and all railing as well as the exterior fire escapewill be replaced and brought into code.  Fund Raising continues with the goal of the enhancing of our bathrooms in both our houses with work scheduled for the winter and spring of 2019.
