The operating guidelines of the property and grounds committee are: Preserve the meetinghouses. Maintain buildings in good repair and grounds in good order. Allow the common room to serve our needs. Keep grounds natural and healthy. To do this the committee relies on: The meeting for funding. We use roughly half of the meeting's budget. P&G budget is $34,000 and change. Our caretaker, Clay Owens, to do the bulk of the day-to-day work. Meeting committees and folks to employ their time and talents (e.g., clean-up days). Outside contractors.
This year some of the special efforts have been to maintain and expand the native plants along our eastern and northern property lines, repair and paint the entry area of the brick meetinghouse, paint (partially) Annie's cottage, improve grading and drainage around the old meetinghouse, and work with the consultants and contractors on window repairs, ventilation, and siding repairs to the old meetinghouse.
Members of the property and grounds committee have been Priscilla Bond Sener (co-clerk), Robert Gladney, John Hawkinson, Bill Lane, Matt Moore, Clay Owens, Nancy Robbins, Bob Wack, Winslow Womack, and Larny Claggett (co-clerk). Due to personal reasons, Bob Wack and John Hawkinson have stepped down.
