Troop 15 has been a part of St. Anne’s since 1938 and currently has over 40 scouts who participate in outdoor activities, provide for service projects and most recently supported the St. Anne’s Parish Fall Festival. Thank you for your continued support!

Carpet replacement update

I’ve been told that our carpet is about 12 years old (probably from the time of the Church’s 100th anniversary) during the time of Fr. Ed Dura as Pastor. Regardless of its exact age, our carpet is worn and in need of replacement. Encouraged by a couple of generous donors, we have the option to replace it before Christmas with a medium quality carpet at about $27K that should last about 15-20yrs. However it will begin to show wear and tear at about 12-15yrs. A more expensive carpet, made of wool, at about $50K is expected to last about 40-50yrs, but still looking new after 20-25 years. However, this special carpet will need to be made and won’t be available until around Easter. If you were to choose, which would you choose? We’ll be discussing this with the Finance Committee but I’m interested in your input. In the meanwhile, if you’d like to make a contribution to the Carpet replacement, please make a check payable to St. Anne Church and include in the memo line, “Carpet.” Thank you! –Fr. Dan
