Suggestions help us improve communication!   Joan Bromage had suggested that we put copies of Vestry meeting minutes and Net Tenders at church where they could be easily accessible.  In response to her suggestion, there are now two notebooks in the Common Room - one for 2014 Vestry Meeting Minutes and another for Net Tender issues. We ask that you read the contents of the notebooks in the Common Room and refrain from removing pages from the notebooks. The Vestry notebook will be updated after meeting minutes are approved; the Net Tender notebook will be updated when a new issue is published. At present, there are minutes for the February and March 2014 Vestry meetings (no meeting in January, the April minutes have yet to be approved.)   And there are Net Tender issues from February, March, April and May this year (the Net Tender is not published in January). Our thanks to Joan for her suggestion!


Volunteers needed. Michele will be out of the office from May 18 to 31. If you would be interested in spending from 9-noon on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday of those weeks, please contact Michele at 244-3229. No typing required; just answer the phone and greet anyone who may come into the office.
