Some more news from the Calvary Restoration!
In two updates ago I told you the story of the restoration of our handbells and the wonderful response to my request for donations to “rescue” them. Well the good news is that the refurbishment has been completed by Schulmerich Handbell Company and they have been returned to Newburgh. They are being stored safely at Norman Brothers Moving and Storage until our bell choir can, once again, prepare music for our worship services and attend the Hudson Valley Handbell Festival. (Though as we know that could be a while as we battle Covid)
Also in that update I told you that we have the go-ahead from the insurance company to proceed with the restoration of our Skinner Organ. This picture, provided by Peter S, is from November 4 when Foley Baker Company came to check out the organ to plan the start the disassembly and moving of the pipes to their workshop.
As a follow up to the update on October 29, I stopped in at the church today and found that the carpenters have done a lot of work on framing in fellowship hall. Here is how it looked today.

So we continue to move forward and rebuild our church. My prayer is that our country can start to move forward and rebuild also. Hoping and praying you are all safe and well.
