Also, our new doors arrived this week. This is the first leg of the “Red Door and More” Campaign. Earlier this year, the contractors who made the new doors took the stained glass panels from the old doors and reconditioned them for installation in the new doors. The brass hardware from the old doors have been reconditioned as well and have been shown off on their “old homes” until the new doors arrived. Within a couple of weeks, the new doors will be installed. Here’s a sneak peak at the shiny new doors. (Click for larger views.)
