The Trustees of the Church Property
UUSMV has three Trustees of Church Property who hold legal title to the land and the church building and personal property. They are elected by the Society to 3-year overlapping terms.
Currently serving as Trustees are Norman Stickney, Chair, Russ Hartenstine, and Mike Savoy; Lucinda Sheldon, PC Liaison.
The principal responsibility of the Trustees is to keep the chapel in good repair and the grounds in good condition. An annual inspection is carried out in June and a comprehensive report and proposal for needed repairs and maintenance submitted to the Parish Committee and to the congregation at the time of the Annual Meeting.
The Chair of the Trustees also serves as Chair of the Buildings and Grounds Committee, under which the actual maintenance work is carried out.
UUSMV currently has 3 members of the B&G Committee in addition to the Trustees Chair. They are Russ Hartenstine, Roger Moffat, Mike Savoy and Lucinda Sheldon.
