If you missed his talk or want to learn more, he has provided the slides from his talk ( click here to download). He hopes you will be convinced to throw out your old incandescent bulbs and buy LEDs to save energy (and money) and reduce your carbon footprint!
Check Out the Susan Moseley Memory Book!
Walk down memory lane by checking out the church's copy of the memory book we gave to Susan at her sendoff. There are great memories dating back all the way to 2006. Also, there are four copies of the full-length farewell video for Susan that can be borrowed from the front desk. There are even more people and stories than the one shared at the sendoff.
