Annual Meeting II Highlights
* Parishioners elected Mary Provo, Judith Cox and Faye Ward as St. Margaret’s delegates to the Diocesan convention in Portland on Oct. 25-26. Linda Dunson and Ellen Kenney were elected as alternates.
* Deacon Tom Duplessie thanked the parish for its personal and financial support and told of several family situations in the community which benefitted from his discretionary fund. He also recounted ways in which the parish is reaching out to men from the Re-Entry Center and joining in ecumenical fund-raisers to support the GBAM Interfaith Fuel fund. He said he will be asking Bishop Steve Lane to reassign him to St. Margaret’s for another year when his current yearly assignment ends in June.
* There were oral reports about the past year from the Choir, Discernment Committee, Mission Outreach and the Women of St. Margaret’s. Ellen Kenney, treasurer of WSM, listed a total of $6,067 which the women raised and then gave to community organizations in 2014.
