CAT information 


Thank you to all who participated in the CAT survey. December 12th the Logistics Committee and others met with Ryan Christenson, a consultant from Holy Cow. He shared the results of the assessment. The information will be shared with the congregation in January.



Our annual fundraiser was very successful last year.  Thank you for purchasing the nuts, candies and dried fruits.  We hope you enjoyed eating them during your holiday festivities.  We still have a few varieties on hand in case your “stash” has run low!!


Happy New Year to all!!
