The Trustees will meet on February 18 at 11:00 am.
Yes, we need to get together soon, so for the immediate future, let’s meet next Thursday, Feb. 22 at 4:30 pm. We may want to make different meeting time arrangements going forward. If you have elected a Chair, great, if not could another member attend the meeting ? Hopefully, we will establish some goals or improve our meetings so that we have a plan for 2018 ……..other than meeting because it’s a certain time of the month.
Departing from our tradition of meeting on the third Sunday, youth group will NOT meet on February 18th. Instead, youth will have the option to travel to Camp Wilmot in Wilmot, NH the following weekend. Departing Friday the 23rd and returning Sunday the 25th, the group will be joining several other church groups at a youth retreat. Please see Jeremy or Shelby for additional information.
