The Elections Committee members are outgoing Vestry members Lois Jenkins, Froylan Luna, Max Martinez, Paula Panissidi, and Grace Siwajuola, with at-large members Emerica Williams and Refiloe Bam. Lois Jenkins (Rector’s Warden) is ex officio on the Elections Committee. We are seeking nominations for the following positions: 1 3 1 1 1 Vestry Member for one 1 year term (filling Norm Nicholson’s vacated position) through December 31, 2015 Vestry Members for 3 year terms (January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017) Diocesan Delegate (3 year term, February 1, 2015 through January 31, 2018) Alternate Diocesan Delegate (3 year term, February 1, 2015 through January 31, 2018) Rector’s Warden (3 year term, January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017) In keeping with the bylaws we will need at least six nominees for the four Vestry positions, two nominees for the office of Diocesan Delegate and Alternate Diocesan Delegate, and two nominees for Rector’s Warden, but we hope that more people will consider running for these offices. Even if you do not get elected this time, it is a chance to begin exploring how you might want to take a more active role in our church government. Please consider prayerfully whether this may be the time for you to consider serving in leadership at Episcopal Church of Our Saviour in this way. Nomination forms and ballot boxes are located in the Narthex and in the hallway beside the office wing. This year marks the 58th anniversary of the Fellowship of the Trees at the Church of Our Saviour! This effort has been held every year since 1957 on the site of the church and long ago became a “community tradition”. We look forward to another successful year in 2014 and will need everyone’s help. Please come out and join us during the campaign! We hope that all church members will buy their trees at the church and ask that each member encourage at least one of their friends, neighbors, or co-workers to do the same. Remember that all proceeds from this effort are used by the church for its outreach programs and operations. Last year we raised just under $14,200. We plan to set up the tree lot on Saturday, November 22nd beginning at 9 am. Please come out with your portable drill and gloves and give us a hand! The more folks that show up, the quicker it all goes!! We have ordered 390 beautiful trees and 75 Fraser fir wreathes this year and they will arrive on Sunday, November 30 at 7 am. This is when we need the most help to unload the truck and fill up the lot. Last year we had a great group so please come out and help us out again. It is a wonderful way to work off all of that turkey, dressing, gravy, and pumpkin pie…. Sales will begin on Sunday, November 30th and we will be open every day. The hours and “shifts” we will be looking to fill with help are: Monday thru Friday: 3 to 6 pm and 6 to 9 pm Saturday and Sunday: 9 to noon; noon to 3 pm; 3 to 6 pm; and 6 to 9 pm. We need as much help as possible to make this year a successful one. Mark your calendars now as there are many days on which you can help. A calendar will be posted soon on the bulletin board outside the Commons Room where you can sign up for shifts to sell trees and help on the lot. We must have at least two individuals for each shift. While we would like folks to commit to a full 3 hour block of time, we understand that this is sometimes hard to do, so please sign up even if you can only come for part of the time and indicate what times you plan to be there. There will always be someone with experience on each shift who can operate the chain saw and help get the trees tied on the cars so don’t let your inexperience keep you away! If you do sign up and then have to change or cancel, please let us know. If you have any questions, please call Don Spicer at 301-989-0503. Thanks in advance for all of your support. Those for Whom We Pray Gracious God, watch over these your children. Send your healing power upon those who are sick, protect those travelling or in danger, and guide those who have decisions to make. Make known your love to all. We ask all this in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
