Meeting Alert- Presbytery Office Will Be Unavailable
Aqua Pennsylvania will soon begin work using the easement granted at Presbytery a few weeks ago. Their work will take over the Presbytery parking lot, and will be extremely noisy, messy, and may at times shake the entire building. We are requesting that all committees move their meetings to an alternate location at least until October. They have promised to give us advance notice of when the work will begin, but guarantee that it will happen in the next three months and will take several days or longer. It is also likely that Presbytery staff will be unable to get into the parking lot or be able to use the building during their work- we will still be answering emails and sending out eLink during that time though. We’ll let you know when we know.
