Book Chat | Crafts for a Cause | Contractor Needed | Wednesday Night Dinners
The Trinity Book Chat will meet on Tuesday, January 12, to discuss The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, by Jan-Philipp Sendker. This novel set in Burma focuses on a daughter’s search for her father – and the power of love to move mountains. We meet in the Library at 6:30 p.m. for fellowship and lively conversation. Bring a light dinner, if you like; dessert is provided, and reading the book isn’t even required! Contact Kathy Maher (Kathyngs@gmail.com) to be added to the email list.
Crafts for a Cause
It’s a Happy New Year for Crafts for a Cause, thanks to all of you who shopped at our Holiday Bazaar last month. Before the last Sunday of sales, we had raised more than $2,000! That enables us to buy supplies to make comfort items for hospitals and shelters, plus make a generous donation to Trinity’s missions in Honduras. Many thanks to everyone who supported the Bazaar.
The crafts group was also happy to donate to Fair Oaks Hospital our annual gift of 50 red flannel stockings and knitted Santa hats for newborns. Making the stockings was a group effort, while the hats were knitted by Nell Gilmore, Judy Osha, Ann Case and Betty-Jo Booth.
In 2016, Crafts will continue our schedule of Monday night meetings and Wednesday morning sessions on alternating weeks. In January, the dates will be Mon., Jan. 4 and Jan. 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.; and Wed., Jan. 13 and Jan. 27 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Everyone’s welcome to join us in making pillows, bears, dolls and blankets – even if you think you’re not crafty! For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at email@example.com.
Looking for a Contractor
After the very sad and untimely death of our dear friend and maintenance man, Jack Jardine, we are now seeking a new part-time contractor to keep our church campus running smoothly.
Please be thinking of someone you know who might be interested in working two days a month at Trinity (i.e. every other Friday or other convenient day of the week) as a handyman/maintenance person. We need someone who has commercial experience and has his/her own business license to work as a contractor for us.
This person needs to have a range of skills including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning. It would be helpful if he/she had a handyman license or any other professional licenses.
If you have any suggestions for a maintenance person, please contact Karen Hunt (703-241-4538 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mary Weaver (703-405-8804 or email@example.com). Trustees are anxious to find someone very soon, as winter is upon us.
