The Carpenter Hospice 2014
The Carpenter Hospice continues to provide a valuable and needed service to our Burlington community. In return, an exceptionally large group of clubs, organizations and businesses are most generous with their continuing financial support.
This past year, a presentation was made to our St. Stephen Church Council, by the Board Chair, Vice-Chair, and Property Chair, Angelo Paletta, Francis Mackan, and Dave Bedini, respectively, regarding the expansion and renovation plans for the Hospice. They came complete with artist’s renderings and architectural layouts of the proposals for our review. While this project seems to be dragging on, the process is continuing as there are still many details that need to be addressed and finalized. Our Church Council found no issues of major concern and thus approved their plans in principle.
We will be keeping the Hospice Board informed regarding St. Stephen’s re-developing plans as they progress. Naturally, they have a vested interest as to what goes on with our congregation and church property.
In the coming term, Francis Mackan succeeds Angelo Paletta as Board Chair. Francis is a partner of Deloitte in Burlington.
