Columbarium Expansion Begins
From its inception nearly fifteen years ago, plans were made for the eventual expansion of our columbarium. We continue to appreciate and benefit from the architectural drawings made by Parker Narrows. Now that phase one of the columbarium has almost 90% capacity, the time has come to begin phase two. The Trustees want to make the congregation aware that soon you will begin seeing signs of new construction. At the same time the Trustees want to report that approximately twenty niches remain available in phase one. The cost of each niche is $1600 (which includes space for two urns). While the cost of a niche in phase two has not yet been determined, it is clear to the Trustees that the cost per niche will increase in order to cover construction costs of these 168 additional niches. For more information about purchasing a niche in phase one, please contact Lillian Gilley at 334-834-8990 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
