President's Report

Spring 2019

As we approach our 136th year at the Chapel, the countdown begins for another Sconset summer. Our thoughts go to our special village with all of our family traditions which we hold dear.

Our calendar displays not only a vibrant schedule of worship services, weddings and baptisms, but also an array of speakers and lectures on topics of interest to many of our congregants.

However, amongst all of this activity one must not forget that the Chapel offers a quiet place to retreat for personal reflection and meditation as the pace of summer moves into high gear. These dual roles establish the Chapel as a solid rock in the center of the village.

During the winter months your board has addressed ever present budgetary matters along with maintenance of our building, columbarium and grounds. We are addressing the issue of an interior cooling system that will hopefully offer relief from uncomfortable July and August temperatures.

We are most grateful for your generous support which enables the Chapel to carry out it’s mission. As you are aware we are totally dependent upon your gifts to keep us viable. Thanks you for recognizing and addressing this need.

As Spring awakens, we look forward to reuniting with our friends in the Chapel community and our first sighting of Carr with Lady on his daily walks through the village.
