History Room

In response to the interest in preparing a History Room to preserve the historical records we are no longer using, we are eager to start this project.  Please share with us any major events, programs, stories, projects, and pictures.  You can place your items in a basket on the table in the back of the sanctuary.  Stay tuned as things come together.  It will be a fun way to share memories!

 

Let’s “Resurrect” our Garden!

Anyone interested in helping to resurrect our community garden, whether with labor, maintenance or just good ol’ advice, please contact Nancy Griffin or Nancy Vellano.  We’d like to set up a meeting for a planning session.
