Steven Fifield, resorationistAMHERST CITIZEN FILE PHOTOMeet Your Meetinghouse is a unique opportunity to hear Amherst history brought to life. Steve Fifield, owner of Fifield Building and Relocation in Canterbury, will share details of the steeple restoration. With 25 years of experience in 18th and 19th century restoration of churches and steeples, he is a knowledgeable, experienced, authentic, and entertaining speaker.

 To date, the capital campaign has received generous donations from church and community members and local organizations totaling almost $600,000, and continues to raise funds toward its goal of $850,000. The Congregational Church of Amherst and the Amherst Community Foundation are particularly grateful to the Town of Amherst (for helping financially with the steeple work), the Historical Society of Amherst, the Bean Foundation, the Amherst Junior Women’s Club, and the Milford Rotary Club for their generosity. For further information and/or to donate to the campaign, visit www.ccamherst.org/capcampaign or www.amherstfoundation.org/meetinghouse.
