Well folks, sorry for those of you that were not able to attend Epiphany's Annual Parish Meeting via zoom. It was well run, very organized, and most informative and to the point. The 3 NEW Vestry Members elected were Deana Geuther, David Leitch, and Susan Wallace. For 2021 we had 114% of the confirmed pledges paid. We had a $12,000 deficit budget--we not only recouped that but also an additional $6,597. WOW---now folks we have not been at Epiphany as long as many of you have, but I don't ever recall us doing that and I have seen some BIG deficit budgets here at Epiphany. For 2022 we have a deficit budget of $12,503 dollars, which does not include the Lawnservice or some smaller items, but we have rented the Paris Hall to a martial arts teacher for $200 per month which will give us some income we have not had. The senior and junior wardens for 2022 respectfully are Linda Myers and Rachel Bryson. All we can say is a BIG Thank You to the People and Friends of Epiphany.
Sunday, January 16th: Attendance: 42 via Zoom O The New Forward Day by Day for March, April, and May is available in the Church Office.
Jim and Linda Dyke are scheduled to Layread this coming Sunday, January 23rd.
Happy Birthday to David Leitch, 01-22, and Mathias Montemayor, 01-25.
****THE GOAL OF THE REGATHERING COMMITTEE, WHICH MEETS EVERY 2 WEEKS, IS TO GET US BACK TOGETHER AS SOON AS IT IS SAFE FOR ALL.
Saw an interesting article in the Daily Tribune.com on January 18. Bandera Electric Cooperative is bringing High Speed, 100% Fiber broadband to Llano in the early spring of 2022. Check the article for more details. Who knows, maybe it will bring about better internet service in the future for some of you.???????
