Thank you, thank you! Our Auction Amnesty celebration was fun, and we raised some funds to support our church’s programs! We’ll report the total when we’ve finished the tally. Many thanks to our Auction chairs Katherine Flynn and Paula Marchese, and to all

We are now more than halfway through the 2020-21 fiscal year, and I’m pleased to report that things are going well. Although our income and expenses are always somewhat different from what we had planned, we are “in the black” overall. If you’d like more detail, we’re happy to share! Email Ann Rhody at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to all who help to keep the church financially healthy!
