Tree Removal

St. Michael’s vestry discussed landscaping so our Church looks appealing for our parishioners, guests and our new rector upon arrival.  Therefore the vestry has voted to remove four (4) trees from St. Michael’s property.  The four Sugar Plum Trees are located, 1 near the front entrance, 1 at the east end of property and the last 2 are at the west parking lot entrance. These trees cause a maintenance and safety risk.  Due to the above reasons, the trees will be removed on or about 15 Oct. Rick Young Senior Warden

Ice Machine Removal

The ice machine in the kitchen has broke down for the last time.  It will be removed from the building on September 28th.  Anyone who uses the ice machine will need to provide ice without the use of the ice machine.
