Friends and supporters from Wendell and beyond have contributed to the success of our Capital Campaign to revitalize the Wendell Meetinghouse. Donors have contributed more than $60,000 and hundreds of hours to our project over the past two years.
Our elected officials, Rep. Susannah Whipps and Sen. Jo Comerford, have secured $50,000 in state aid to our project, and the town of Wendell has agreed to connect the Meetinghouse to town water and septic service in 2022. The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts has also awarded a $20,000 grant to support the renovation project.
The Friends have invited partnerships with many local organizations who are eager to co-sponsor programs with the Meetinghouse including:
- Wendell Free Library
- Wendell Community Chorus
- Wendell Council on Aging
- Wendell Cultural Council
- Full Moon Coffeehouse
- Village Neighbors Inc.; and
- Human Error Publishing
Local businesses Greenfield Cooperative Bank, Greenfield Savings Bank, Athol Savings Bank, Scott’s Garage, and Witty’s Funeral Home have contributed generous support to our campaign and in 2019 we were named beneficiary of the Wendell’s legendary Misfit Prom and historic Full Moon Coffeehouse.
Please join these friends who have contributed funds, talents, and materials to our campaign. There are many ways to help! Read all about how you can get involved.
