CHURCH TO REPLACE HISTORIC STAINED-GLASS WINDOWS

by Craig Altschul

The stained-glass windows at the Poultney Methodist Church, built in 1841, have been in place for over 100 years. But time and interior temperature fluctuations have taken their toll, said the Rutland Herald. Cracks run between each colored pieces of glass and there are parts of the window that protrude. The solution to save the windows and prevent future deterioration is to restore the windows. The church has developed a campaign to raise $150,00, of which $120,00 already has been raised or pledged and $27,000 already received. Guy Savino and his brother, Bob, who own the All in Glass Studio Too, will be handling the restoration process. They’re hoping to finish the project within the next year. The good news is that the new windows will have thermal protection which will help to protect the windows and reduce energy costs for the church. A step-by-step CD of the entire process set to music will be prepared for current and future parishioners to see. Anyone interested in making a donation for the restoration process can call the church at 802-287-5710.
