Well, congratulations ladies; you did it again, THE RUMMAGE SALE WAS AND IS A TREMENDOUS SUCCESS--almost $6,000. Please get some REST, cause I know that y'all overdid yourselves. MANY THANKS TO ALL, GALS AND GUYS, THAT PARTICIPATED IN SO MANY, MANY WAYS.
Many thanks to Fr, Ben Long for filling in Sunday--as usual, an EXCELLENT SERMON. Fr. Michael will be back this coming Sunday, the 18th. By the way, he was viewing the service Sunday on ZOOM.
AND, the BIG STACK of "Firewood" from the dead tree, is GONE. Thanks again to ALL that participated.
SOME WORDS FROM Fr. Michael: As you all know, our beloved Dianne Williams is retiring and moving away. We will miss her terribly and are grateful for her continuing service to the parish. This means that we need to find a successor to her. I remind you that we are not to hire a parishioner for any paid position, including this vital one. I have written to priests in the neighboring parishes, and we will be publicizing the position through various media, but we want your help. If you know of someone who might be interested in this half-time position, please contact--or have them contact--Deana Geuther at 806-290-3118. It would be most helpful to find someone with a working knowledge of the Episcopal Church. Questions about salary, duties, etc., may be directed to Deana. Remember that we are barred from asking any potential candidates about their age, marital status, and other such details. Thank you all for your help!
