|No More Shopping
Bag Orders, Please
Barbara Todd thanks everyone who ordered cloth
shopping bags and made contributions to the Rector's
discretionary fund. The response has been fantastic! She
now has enough orders to keep her busy for the foreseeable
future, so she's taking no new orders at this time.
We thank Barbara for this generous way of supporting the
Vicar's Discretionary Fund.
