May Outreach Donations
This month you have the opportunity to donate baby and toddler items for our neighbors served by the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless. They need diapers, wipes, soaps, shampoos, clothing, baby and toddler food, etc. Why not consider an Outreach family shopping trip with your children helping to select these donations? It's a win- win idea! Thank you for your generosity.
Relief for Nepal
Those wishing to reach out for the victims of the devastating earthquake in Nepal may write a check to: St. Paul’s and mark the memo “earthquake.” We will gather the funds and send them along to Episcopal Relief and Development, our national church’s outreach arm.
The Rector and the Garth Committee have received advise on new plantings to replace the overgrown holly that will not pose the same issues. We are moving ahead. All of this is in anticipation for doing some major work on the walls and roof this summer.
Spring Has Finally Sprung and We Need Help
Would you be willing to spend about an hour a week every now and then to help maintain our beautiful Garth? We need people to mow the grass, water the flowers in the stone urn, and sweep the walk each week until fall. We welcome newcomers, old-timers, teens, adults, males and females. St. Paul’s is an equal opportunity work site!
Our little mower is electric and has no pesky cord to trip on or run over. Instructions for starting are attached to the mower. It’s light and easy to use. Sign-up sheets are posted on the Garth bulletin board outside the Meeting Rm in the office hallway. Could you choose a week or two? Questions? Call Gale & Chuck Jacob, 654-5356.
