Vestry Elections; Sunday, November 22

This is an important time in the life of this parish which will need strong leaders and who are visionary and people of compassion.  All of the following candidates have met with either Fr. Mike, our Senior Warden or our Junior Warden. They understand what the work of a vestry member is all about and are willing and eager to take that on. In addition, they, along with the rest of the vestry will be responsible for calling a new rector to Redeemer.

The election will take place this Sunday, November 22. We will have a station set up to vote at. Roger Hogle will be present to give you a ballot and check your name off. He will be located in the parish hall. He will be available following both services.

For those who will be unable to attend the services this Sunday, you can either email or snail-mail me your votes. This has to be done by Saturday, November 21.

The four members going off the vestry (Ginny Bertrand, Charlie Brockett, Dan Danielson, and Roger Hogle) will tally the votes and we will send an email out notifying you of the vote results. Should their need to be a runoff, we will conduct the vote the same way on November 29th.

Please carefully and prayerfully consider the following people who have been nominated and are willing to step up and follow through with what will be asked of them as vestry members.

We thank the four members whose terms have finished very their faithful and productive service: Ginny Bertrand, Charlie Brockett, Dan Danielson, and Roger Hogle.
