1stClass Painting began the restoration of the windows of Old St. John’s Meeting House Wednesday, taking the old windows to the shop for cleaning, replacing hardware, and installing new glass. Jeff and Tim Cutliff are in charge of the project.

A grant by the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor provided $8217 for the project, but that amount was raised, and more, through donations for the windows (and two sets of double doors) by Walhalla individuals, banks and businesses. The Heritage Corridor has assisted in the moving and restoration of the building and must be commended for helping to save this bit of Walhalla’s history. When work on the windows has been completed the exterior of the building will be repaired, board and batten placed on the entryway, scraped and painted.

SPRING FLING III rolls around May 11, the third May event fundraiser for Old St. John’s. Barbeque, Bake Sale, and Silent Auction with a Tag Sale will begin at 5 pm. Derrick Phillips, a one-man band performer and entertainer, John Bowers’The Binge and Eddie Martin’s Conservation Theory have agreed to help raise funds for OSJ.
