Joys, Concerns, Events & Announcements
Share Your Thoughts After listening to our speakers at the 150th anniversary dinner I wanted to know what you all are doing to help the earth. I thought I could help by bring together our ideas and putting them in one place at the church. We can help each other do more if we join together on each other's projects. Send me ideas of things that we could do (even if not completely thought out), things that you are doing or things others have thought of that you think are cool or worth copying. Thanks. -- Bruce Shilling, email@example.com
