Thank you to everyone who helped with the Hanging of the Greens sanctuary decorating last Sunday. The sanctuary and Swance Tree Farm tree look so beautiful. Thank you to everyone who continues to quietly maintain our property… Bob and John Dixon for mulching the leaves, Sharon Banks and Monique Gagnon for the outside Christmas decorations, Sheldon Legacy for changing burned out bulbs and setting the furnace timer. Both Sheldon and Don Callaway keep our building free of little furry creatures. Lois, Tina and I did a thorough cleaning of the church last Friday. The room at the wheelchair ramp looks fantastic. We still need to clean and organize the back room. Let me know if you are interested in joining in this future activity.
