Yesterday, Gossips shared the news, first announced on Facebook, that the project to repair and replace the First Presbyterian Church's standing seam metal roof, which is more than a hundred years old, had begun. That post gave the impression that all the money needed for the project had been raised. That's not exactly the case.

Today I learned from Theresa Parsons, treasurer of the Friends of the First Presbyterian Church, that nearly 95 percent of the total cost of the project has been raised. Yesterday, after hearing that the project had begun, a first time donor offered to match all donations made in July, up to $5,000. In addition to the match, the church needs to raise another $10,000 in the next few weeks.
Now is the perfect time to make a gift, large or small, to help preserve this beloved Hudson landmark. We are all enriched by its presence. We all need to help support its preservation. Click here to make a contribution, or send a check to Friends of FPC at 369 Warren Street, Hudson, NY 12534.
