Relief for Nepal
Those wishing to reach out for the victims of the devastating earthquakes 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.
We have begun some digging in the pachysandra to uncover drainage pipes to have them evaluated so that we can begin to receive project parameters for a drainage fix. The result is that we will need some extensive new and larger drainage pipes to keep the water flowing and not backing up into the building. More to follow.
There are several trees that need to come down on our property. We are receiving bids. We are also evaluating a major cleanup of the land next to the playground on the Lenox Avenue side.
The vestry sponsored a lunch after church last week. There were enormous subs and drinks and sweets. All enjoyed! Thanks to the organizers!!
Please consider paying your pledge ahead so our typical summer cash flow problems are minimized. Thank you!
Book Club’s next meeting – July 29th
For men and women booklovers and for those who want more lively reading choices. The book club will be reading one of the most talked about books of the year, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (now available in paperback). In an instant the world changes, but not by thermonuclear war, violence, or WMD. Imagine a world without gasoline, electricity, food distribution, manufacturing, internet, and communications; imagine civilization starting over after 99% of the world population has died. Is life sustainable through looting and murder? What of culture and brotherhood survive? “Apocalypse lite”? no, Station Eleven is rather post-apocalyptical humanity. Join the discussion on July 29th at 7:30pm. Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are mailing out the remaining pledge envelopes for those of you who do not have them. Just a friendly reminder to support our church.
