Plaster repair and painting was underway at Ulster United Methodist Church January 21, 2011 and completed on January 28, 2011.
The committee had been working for two years to identify needs.
Extensive restoration was completed on the exterior of the church October 2010. It included cleaning, and pointing and waterproofing the masonry, replacing masonry caps, new copper flashing around the towers, replacing the roofing material and flashing behind the bell tower, white formed aluminum trim along the top of the church, and reconstructing the bell tower windows and louvers to make them both weatherproof and bat-proof. A fifteen-foot stainless steel cross was erected on top of the bell tower. Work was done by CJ Diirner and Sons from Ephrata, PA.
The interior of the sanctuary had suffered damage from roof leaks. Restoration work inside included repairing, patching and painting the walls and ceiling of the sanctuary. Work was done by Mountain Lake Construction, Towanda, PA.
Celebration Sunday was October 29, 2010. The highlight of the event was the ringing of the bell, which we hadn’t been able to do because it was not safe.
A capital campaign was run for the first time ever led by our consultant, Andi Tilmann, Tri-Unity Consulting, Hillsborough, NC. Ulster Church will be celebrating its centennial in 2012.
Renovation committee members are Pastor Sandy Brant, Nancy Campbell, Carol Babcock, Dan Reynolds, Virginia Pruyne, Bob Lee (chairman), and Linda Lee.
