  • Groundskeeper: The trustees are looking for someone to take on the responsibility of head groundskeeper. Duties would include making sure we have volunteers for mowing in the summer and snow blowing the sidewalks in the winter. If you are interested or have any questions, please see any of the trustees.
  • Easter Brunch Sign-Up: On the bulletin board in the hallway you will find sign-up sheets about our Easter brunch. One sheet is for the food that is needed for the brunch. Please scan the sheet and see what you would be willing to bring. The second sheet is for those who plan on attending the Easter brunch. This helps the people who will be setting the tables and chairs up. The third sheet is to volunteer for serving and clean-up. The Easter brunch is a wonderful time for fellowship. We hope to see you there.
