TV show to capture the restoration of the historic East Machias Church

0

EAST MACHIAS, Maine (WABI) — The eyes of a national audience will be on East Machias this summer when a television show captures the restoration of a historic church.

We first told you about the First Congregational Church of East Machias restoration effort earlier this month.

A group of volunteers set out to raise $150,000 to show the major cable company that they were serious about the project.

Now that this initial fundraising goal has been achieved, both parties have agreed to move forward.

Work on the church tower is expected to begin in April with the hope of finishing in August.

A spokesperson for Friends of the First Congregational Church of East Machias said the television production team plans to make 10 city tours, which will be reduced to one hour-long episode.

They are still about $75,000 less than the total cost of the project.

They expect that amount to be $250,000.

If you are interested in donating, you can visit their fundraising page.

Donations can also be made payable to: First Congregational Church of East Machias Restoration Fund. Mail should be addressed to:

Friends of the First Congregational Church of East Machias

PO Box 68, East Machias, Maine 04630

Funds can also be deposited directly into Machias Savings Bank payable to First Congregational Church of East Machias Restoration Fund.
