"During the summer of 1966, Norman and Sally Dewees lived in the carriage house so that Norman could coordinate the renovation of the main building. More than 60 volunteers contributed over 2300 hours of manual labor, which, together with the work of contractors, restored and adapted the building to the Meeting’s needs. The adjacent house and lot were purchased; the house was torn down and the land converted to the present parking lot with a grassy area at the back. The foundation of stones of the demolished house were used to form the low wall around the perimeter of the parking lot.
On Sunday, October 23, 1966, the first Meeting for Worship was held in the new Meeting House with 126 adults and children present. "
