Discussion was held on the acoustic panels for the church to help absorb some of the echo in the church. Joan stated she had not heard any complaints about the sound. Fr. Gerlach asked that we table this item until our meeting in October.

The Wish List & List of Repairs/Needs was discussed briefly. Rob asked if the HVAC system at the rectory had been installed. Joan stated it was installed last week. Joan reported that we purchased LED lights for the entryway, library and two offices. Greg will install these when he has time. The motion sensor lights for the basement have not been installed yet. Greg will also do this when he has time, along with the solar motion light for the outside of the building that will help light up the south sidewalk to the corner west of the church.
