Your Parish Board has just learned that the preschool that has been at First Parish the past six years (FUSE) has decided not to exercise their option to renew their lease with us for the year beginning September 1, 2017. FUSE has grown substantially and will be moving to a larger building.
The Board will form a task force to determine what the possibilities are for renting freed up space in a way that best balances our need to fulfill our mission and our revenue needs.
We will discuss this further with the congregation in the coming weeks and at the June 4th Semi Annual Meeting, when the congregation will vote on a budget for the coming year. In the meantime, if you know of organizations that are interested in renting our space or if you are interested in serving on the task force, please let me or our administrator Jane Foley know.
