This project will allow the chapel to fulfill its original mission: to be a cemetery chapel. It will also give more visitors a chance to enjoy this local gem. The plan keeps Espenschied Chapel intact, with the exception of a new doorway to enter from the totally accessible addition. The new area will be at the same elevation as the main floor of the existing chapel and include restrooms, a green room, a small warming kitchen area and an area large enough to seat 60 people at round tables for luncheons. (An important part of a funeral is the luncheon!) More tables could spill into the chapel area if needed, after the service. We have set up a new account at Citizens Bank, called “The Espenschied Chapel Improvement Fund” for our fundraising campaign. Deposits can be made directly to that account or checks mailed to: Mascoutah Cemetery Chapel Improvement Fund P.O. Box 347 Mascoutah, IL 62258 Please, keep in mind that since we are a 501(c)(3), contributions are tax-deductible. For more information: www.espenschiedchapel.org. As the plans progress, we will be announcing fundraising events and opportunities for you to help make this project a success. We are also reviving the memorial brick campaign, with the generous help of Lager Monument Company. With a donation of $100, each memorial brick can be engraved with a maximum of 13 characters per line, with up to three lines. Spaces & punctuation count. To order, mail a check and the inscription to the chapel P.O. Box 347, Mascoutah, IL 62258 or place order at the chapel in person when we are having a program. Please include how to contact you to confirm the inscription. (Multiple wide letters in one line may require an extra space As, Ms , Ws, Ys.)
