Church steeple lifted on Thursday morning

This Thursday the contractor for the First United Methodist Church building project plans to lift the final stage of the steeple on to the tower. 

Assuming no unexpected delays, this should take place in the vicinity of 10 a.m.  Viewing must be from across Main Street. 

The church message to persons interested in watching this proceedure: It is always possible the 120-ton crane could start a bit earlier so don't plan to be fashionably late and don't be surprised if it happens closer to 10:30 a.m. There are a lot of variables that will not be encountered until the process begins.
