Topic “Givins Castle Building Fund”

New Year Starts with Hope

The devotion to which BUC members, Ken and Adair Small, have given to the Castle Restoration project is truly awe-inspiring. I am using this blog to formally thank them and the rest of the team for their tireless effort in launching this project.

I have finally set up the accounting software and the bank account so that we can properly reach out to the wider community for financial support. All funds obtained from this effort will not be connected to the church or congregation and will go directly to the fund set up to repair the turrets, limestone and windows.

Rick Kogan of the Chicago Tribune conducted a radio interview on WGN with John Devens, who is hosting a series of concerts at the Givins Castle. John is another strong supporter of the Castle Restoration project and is donating all the net proceeds from these concerts to the fund.

A local writer, Carol Flynn, interviewed John about his concerts and her article will appear in the Beverly Review in the next couple of weeks. Carol attended the concert in November and was so impressed she decided to write an article.

I will make sure a concert calendar is posted on our website for 2019. Stay tuned for more events scheduled at the Givins Castle, a community icon and resource for all.

Happy New Year,
Eileen Klees
BUC Board Chair
