Weekly Chimes

Hello Old Donation!
Spring is here for a few days, and I hope you're all enjoying a bit of outdoor fun. Tonight we take a short break from our studies for Vestry Commission Meetings. If you're part of a commission that's meeting, or you are curious as to what it's all about, come for dinner at 6:00 and meetings at 6:30!  
This Sunday is a big day. Genevieve will be preaching at 8:00, 10:30, and 5:00, Bob will be in the Gathering. At 10:30, we also have the chartering of the Daughters of the King, and the commissioning of  seventeen  women, to whom I have the distinct honor of being the chaplain. Then, after the 5:00 service we will have a Newcomer's Dinner in the Parish Hall-pizza, wings, and ice cream for anyone who is new(ish) to the parish. If that's you and you haven't yet RSVP'd, please do so now! You can contact Judy Kuhns with questions or to RSVP.
Finally, after a couple months off, Thirst is picking back up this coming Monday, Feb 10, 7:00pm, at Pleasure House Brewery. For those of you who may have forgotten, this is a casual time to gather and talk about the things you wanted to know, but didn't know how to ask.  
As always, there are plenty of opportunities to see each other this week, so I hope we do!
