Work Day Spruces Up LCH Campus

Removing letters from the front wallMembers of the congregation gathered early in the morning on March 31, 2007, to prepare the LCH campus for Easter and the arrival of our new pastor. Following some stretching exercises to avoid injuries, the group began work on three different projects: repainting the Punahou Street wall, trimming plants around the building, and raking the front lawn.

The painting project began with the removal of the letters and signs on the front wall (right) so they could be repainted and the wall prepared for painting.

Painting the letters and signs from the front wall 
The letters and signs from the front wall were repainted in a darker color to improve visibility from the street.

The wall was then scrubbed and then repainted a brighter white.

Final touch-ups after the letters had been put back on the front wall 
When the letters were replaced, it was obvious to everyone that the higher contrast between the brighter wall and darker letters work make it easier for passers-by to read.
