In an effort to make our parish more hospitable, our parish council commissioned a committee to look into building a senior/handicapped parking lot with a drop-off area on the south side of the Parish Community Center. This lot will hold 50-60 cars, including handicapped spots. The project is just getting started and more details will be available soon. The drop-off will be a benefit for anyone who finds it taxing to walk the long sidewalk into the Parish Community Center; mom carrying baby in a car seat, Grandpa using his walker, brother hopping on crutches, the neighbor who just doesn't get around as easily as she used to and the winner of the big, heavy silent auction basket.
Along with our parish council and finance council I am committed to get this project done. The cost estimate is over $300,000. With everyone's help I believe this is attainable. Already I have heard from some people who are willing to help pay for this valuable enhancement. Please watch for further details in the bulletin and on our website.
To make it easy for people to contribute to this valuable project, the following ways are available to make a parking lot donation: online at www.stgens.org (click on the donate icon on top of the homepage), use the bright yellow envelopes at the building entrances and drop in the collection basket, or send in a contribution to the parish office.
Parking Lot Donations as of 4/6/15 .... $10,100
