Wolfeboro church expansion and renovation on target
Once the framing is complete and the building covered, interior work such as plumbing and electrical will commence.
Over the Christmas holiday season, the crew, community and congregants shared a special moment when a Christmas tree was placed on the structure’s highest point, serving as a beacon.
Senior Pastor The Rev. Gina Finocchiaro said the old tradition of placing a tree or a sprig at the highest point of new construction comes from Eastern Europe. When the tree went up before Christmas, she held a blessing ceremony where team members toasted the occasion with coffee.
Finocchiaro said once the building is closed in, the crews should be able to make up for time lost due to storm clean ups.
Earlier on during the project’s demolition, thieves stole old copper that had been pulled out of the building and a Bobcat construction vehicle was apparently hot-wired and driven onto a flatbed trailer one summer evening, during daylight. The theft case is still open.
The reverend said she is grateful for the support of the church and school community, but is looking forward to the completion of the new building, as are congregants.
