Please join us to hear Pastor Mark preach his first sermon to our congregation. Since this is a holiday weekend, we decided to postpone the luncheon to welcome Pastor Mark and his family until Rally Sunday. However, we are planning to have an expanded coffee hour so those in attendance will have an opportunity to gather and get to know Pastor Mark and his family.

Dear All-

The Save Drew Forest yard signs are everywhere, but do people know what it’s all about? The Friends of the Drew Forest would appreciate your help to publicize an upcoming event being held at the Madison Arts Center on June 29th at 7:30pm.  Could you please share the email invitation below with your friends and neighbors in Madison? How about bringing a friend to the event? You may RSVP at Any questions, please contact Lydia at



Dear __________,

 Please join me at a great community event on June 29th at 7:30pm at the Madison Community Arts Center.

 Sample home-baked cookies and…

 --Watch two short, powerful Forest videos and learn how they were made.

* Bill Lynch, of Florham Park, is a documentary filmmaker who will talk about his short video, a 3-minute tribute to the Legacy of the Drew Forest.

*  Paul Morgan, of Madison, is a drone videographer who has captured a literal bird’s eye view of the Forest. How did he do it? Come with questions.


--Learn why the Forest is a regional treasure.

* A Drew alum will be on hand to share what has gone into the 14-year restoration of the Forest and how the Forest has shaped her career choices.

* Friends of the Drew Forest will explain how a conservation land sale works and why it’s a win-win for the Forest.

 At the end, there will be time to break into small groups and figure out what each of us can do, whether it’s talking to neighbors, tabling at an event or networking with contacts.

 Hope to see you there. Please RSVP so we know how many cookies to bake.



PS There will be excellent swag—Save the Drew Forest tee shirts, magnets and stickers.
