To the members of Follen Church:

You are requested to assemble in the sanctuary of Follen Church

755 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA

at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 8, 2018.

ARTICLE I The Membership of Follen Church authorize the

Capital Campaign Committee to secure a construction loan from

Belmont Savings Bank in the amount of $2,500,000

for the sole purpose of the capital construction project.

These funds are to allow Follen Church to pay for construction

over the next year while Capital Campaign pledges

are continued to be collected over the next two years.

These funds will be reimbursed to Belmont Savings Bank from the

Capital Campaign budget and do not increase the

Capital Campaign budget. The Membership further authorizes the

Capital Campaign Committee to negotiate and implement any and

all financial agreements and transactions within the Capital

Campaign budget, including those which may encumber church

property, necessary to pursue the timely start and completion of all

aspects of the capital construction project.
