New look for pastor’s home
After working throughout the winter on projects with the NOMADS (United Methodist volunteers who travel in their RVs to do repair, construction and painting jobs connected to UMC congregations) two couples from our congregation have tackled a project closer to home.
Using the expertise they have perfected while working with the NOMADS, Duane and Linda Wakefield and Alan and Genny Leathers have given the Cape Elizabeth UMC parsonage a facelift.
During the past few weeks, the Wakefields and Leathers have power-washed the entire exterior of the house, taken down the shutters for painting, painted the trim, and applied stain on the shingles. Years of crusted dirt and grime cascaded off the house during the power-washing, making the parsonage look almost new.
But then came the white paint on the trim, the cream-colored stain on the shingles (which Ruth describes as the color of a vanilla-chocolate ice cream swirl), and the burgundy paint on the shutters.
The work was completed on Aug. 26.
The Leathers and Wakefields have done a masterful job and we all thank them for the commitment to tackle this significant project.
