Remember that hackneyed line that“Plymouth is the best-kept secret in Fort Collins?” That condition is just about to change!
The Leadership Council has launched a mini-campaign to replace our street signage on Prospect Road and Lake Street. Even though our trustees have cobbled together and repaired the 17-year-old sign on Prospect, it is falling apart (as you’ll see in the above 4-minute video*).
With the construction of the CSU football stadium, we have an opportunity to let more people know not just that Plymouth is here, but what makes us unique in our community and ways it might become part of their faith journey.
With a lead gift of $25,000 from a member family at Plymouth, we are already halfway to funding the signs themselves. (An additional $10,000 will cover any landscaping needs and overruns.) As in most capital campaigns, our mini-campaign team is currently soliciting major gifts in the next few weeks, and the open campaign will follow, during which we encourage everyone to support this effort.
Our mini-campaign team is headed by Nic Redavid with Irene Wherritt, Claudia DeMarco, and me serving as well. We invite you to take a look at the 4-minute video* enclosed with this email and see the sign design and hear from three leaders in our congregation.
It will be exciting to see the changes our new signs will bring!
