Website Updates ..

Hi All,

Erick is rejigging our website and needs our help.

At the Annual Meeting we talked about putting the  Hospitality/Liturgy calendar on a calendar page that Bob/Peggy would have access to so that any changes would go through them & be there for all to check, anytime.

Check the page now to see upcoming events/liturgies.

I’d also like to suggest a Resources page.

This could list the music we have, also a what’s where of the resources that scattered when we left Odd Fellows.

We, for instance, have a hanger full of colorful stoles, which could be useful for summer liturgies.

We could post books, spiritual or otherwise, that we would like to pass on.

We could also list our human resources (no emails or phones)—2013-14 officers, the better to know who to contact.

FYI I still have the key until I pass it on to Dotti on Sept. 9.

Remember the Promising News?

As part of our upcoming 40th Anniversary celebration, we are preparing a special edition ‘Promising News!’ and we want to fill it with stories from every member, past and present.  Our idea is to create a verbal and visual snapshot of the people who have made up the Community over our short 40 years.

Can you help by contributing a few paragraphs that tell your story?

If you would like to be included, please send us a short entry about who you are and a how POP has been a part of your life.  If you’ve got one, a photo would be nice (it can be old).
