Courtyard Update From Pat Curtis

The Hardin Courtyard is finished except for the plaque and dedication ceremony. It truly sparkles with Generosity, Community and Stewardship. We all generously contributed to SPRIF III. We participated in community meetings to share our ideas. We all demonstrated that we cared deeply about St. Paul’s and wanted it to serve our community for years to come.

Larry and I worked with many skilled artisans who made this courtyard what it is. They all took great pride in the work they were doing for St. Paul’s. They wanted to do it well and right. We have the signature of each of them which we will include on the Duncan Hall picture display wall we’re putting together.

Mark your calendar for The Dedication which is Sunday, October 22. As part of the ceremony, Bruce Burtch will take a picture from on high of the People of St. Paul’s in the Hardin Courtyard. Wear something colorful. It will be a great occasion!

189 pictures of the project from beginning to end can be found HERE.
