Help to make our Chancel more accessible

The community at UUCV was Geneva Politzer’s extended family for over 20 years. She was a founding member of the church, and contributed her time and energies as a worship associate, member of the choir, writing the yearly auction catalog, and in many other capacities.

As we gather to create a lasting tribute to her memory, we recall her interest in handicap access for this church. Geneva campaigned for the lift that enabled wheelchair access from ground level to the first floor of UUCV, which allowed her handicapped son Michael to freely move around the building. During the final two years of her life, Geneva was also wheelchair bound, and benefitted from the ramp and enhanced access from the main entrance to the church.

There are several projects under discussion that can enhance handicap access. A temporary wheelchair ramp is currently being used in the sanctuary to access the podium, but a wider, permanent ramp would be safer and more aesthetically pleasing.  We are working to make the restrooms at UUCV more accessible

We have set a goal of $5,000 for the campaign at UUCV in order to help expedite these improvements. A similar GoFundMe project will be launched online to reach out to Geneva’s many friends worldwide.

Checks can be mailed to UUCV Office, PO Box 207, Boiling Springs, PA  17007.  Please mark “Geneva Project” in the memo line.
