Doors Need a New Home
While cleaning out the garage, Property committee has a couple of dark wooden doors that need a home. 
These are 9 feet tall, and about 34 inches wide. (Not a standard size).  If you are interested in one, please contact Laurie in the church office 886-9132 or admin1746@trinitystaunton.org.
(A donation to the church is appreciated)
Maundy Thursday Vigil Sign Ups
Please remember to sign up for the all-night vigil for Maundy Thursday (April 13). A signup sheet will be at the back of the church beginning on Sunday, March 5.
FREE Laser Printer
We have a free laser printer (black and white only) to give away to a good home. It is an HP LaserJet 1160. It works just fine but is no longer needed. You can see in the second image below that it uses an older USB port to plug into a computer. If you are interested in having this please contact Deidre at the office 886-9132 or communications@trinitystaunton.org.
Please contact the office by Wednesday, March 22 to claim this offer!


Do you know?
While spring cleaning here at Trinity, we came across this box of "instruments". If you have any information on what this may be for, or why it would be here please contact Laurie in the office 886-9132 or admin1746@trinitystaunton.org.  I have been told that these were donated a few years ago to be taken to Honduras. Does anyone know if this is true?
Name Plaques
We have a dedicated volunteer who would like to make a wooden name plaque for any child at Trinity. If you would like one of these for your child please email communications@trinitystaunton.org with the first name (or go by name) of your child.
