Good News! There is a lot going on behind the scenes! The grease trap in the kitchen was cleaned for the first time in some years–now that was a sight!. The office computer is now a lot faster. All sorts of touch-up painting has been happening. The back of the Church has been reorganized. Recycling bins will soon appear. The new Labyrinth is growing in. We’re assessing the coffee machine!
