They Paved Paradise and Put Up a Parking Lot

The prelims are done. We, the parking lot committee (yes, I’m Baptist. We have committees for everything), presented the proposed parking lot package for a vote last night. After nine weeks of research and bids, we found out…it ain’t gonna be cheap. But it passed with no one opposed. We have $56,000 in the account and will borrow $100,000 at a fantastic 4.25 interest rate. That’s a lot of money. The parking lot has been gravel for over 150 years so it is time for an upgrade. There will be tons of dirt work to do to help with the water flow, nice new, adequate lighting, a new sign, and new landscaping. I’m anxious to get started and see it completed.

Outside our fellowship hall, it isn't even gravel, just very flat grass!

I think Mr. H is going to be on our music search committee.
