Important Building Update

Thank you for your patience during the remodeling of First Parish. The work in remodeling the lower level is finished except for some decorating details, and looks wonderful!

Please note the following changes:


Starting on Wednesday, June 20, the traffic pattern to enter and exit the parking lot will return to normal.


The front doors will be closed for the remainder of the summer painting, due to scaffolding hazards and debris.  All entrance and exit will be through the rear door.  The front door will remain an emergency exit only until the scaffolding is removed.

Rest rooms:

The use of the rest rooms has changed, as many parties need access.  In an effort to minimize disruption of the FUSE summer program, the use will be as follows:

First floor rest room:  First Parish staff, members, and painters only (no children or FUSE staff).  The room will be marked “First Parish Use Only”.

Lower level ADA rest room:  FUSE staff and those needing an accessible rest room only (no children). The room will be marked “FUSE Staff Only, Mon-Thur, 9:00-2:30”.

Lower level women’s and men’s rooms—FUSE campers only M-Th, 9:00-2:30.  No non-FUSE adults permitted during these hours. The room will be marked “FUSE  Camper Use Only”.


All windows on the lower level are new, safe, and have full screens. Feel free to open them during your meetings, but in order to ensure building safety, please double check that all are closed and locked before you leave.

Enjoy the summer, and contact Jane Foley with any issues or questions. Office hours are M-Th, 8:30-1:30.
