What’s Happening at St. Peter’s
St. Peter’s Annual Fall Clean-up –Buildings and Grounds Committee has scheduled our Fall Clean-up for November 21st. We will meet at Phelps Hall at 8:00 a.m. for coffee and start work at 9:00. This will include the cleanup around the church, garden, parish hall and rectory. It is a great way to get together with fellow parishioners and work on beautifying the church grounds and have a few laughs. We also provide fuel for your efforts with coffee and donuts/bagels. Please come armed with your gloves, tarps, rakes. “Many hands make light work” so the more people come, the quicker it will go.

Weekly Weeders – We’ve closed up shop for the season. We’d like to thank our ‘regulars’ for the wonderful work they did this summer. Thanks to Francine Bloch, Joan and Ron Churney, Billy Kreck, Rick Marks, Cindy Brinkman, Kathy Kniep, Robin Messenger, Amy Stone and Joanie Perkins, the Memorial Garden has never looked so good! They came on Monday nights when they could and the results speak for themselves. Special thanks go to Chris Gerke for the amazing work he has done pruning the shrubbery in the garden and around the church. He was spotted working out there at all times of the day and every day of the week and we are so appreciative of all that he has done! See you all next Spring!
