ST. ANDREW'S SIGNPOST
The Rev. Canon Linda Mayer, Priest
Linda Cox, Senior Warden
Bob Beeson, Junior Warden
Excerpt from Vestry Retreat—
Priest Linda M. reported that there will be a supply priest here May 20th and 2 Sunday's in June. She had been to a clergy meeting – the discussions revolved around culture, age & regional differences. It was a good conference with great leadership.
Sr. Warden Linda C. reported that there had been a leak in April's office. A-1 roofing was called and Ron checked it out. Repairs were done but no bill yet. Linda had just attended a "Constitutions & Canons" workshop. They are re-working Canon #9. Their report is generated for the fall. The Diocese will review. A "Thank you " note was read from the Food Bank for our regular $200 monthly gift. Linda read a letter from the Bishop's Scholarship fund. A request was made to please support this fund by holding an annual fund-raiser.
Buildings and grounds member Susan F. reported that the church windows & gutters need cleaning. Extreme Janitorial will do this. With Susan leaving within days, Linda C volunteered a 1-time offer to schedule this work to be done. New pancake grills need to be ordered. Linda C will find out what Kelly's has to offer & Marci said she would look on-line as well. We emphasized that the old unit is to be put in the garbage-- not stored or "given away".
Summer is almost here! Some brave people may have already dipped their toes in the lake, but June 21 officially kicks off the summer season! June 21 is the Summer Solstice, when the sun reaches its highest point above Earth, and we have the longest day of sunshine all year. All over the world different cultures will be celebrating this event with their own traditions, and we are going to do the same! Join us at 6:00 p.m. for a Summer Solstice Celebration followed by a potluck in the Parish Hall on Thursday, June 21. Bring your friends and family so we can enjoy the sunshine all day long together (and don’t forget the yummy treats)! Who’s ready for summer?

Farewell Darrell and Judy Thayer
The church family bid a fond farewell to beloved members Darrell and Judy at a party in the parish hall on May 24. Donna and John Bagby chaired the event, and everyone brought delicious foods and wines when they came to say goodbye. The Thayers got a great send-off complete with marching bands, as the annual Memorial Day Parade went by just as the party was starting. It put everyone in a party mood. We will all miss Darrell and Judy, but we know they will be happy in their new home in Roseburg, OR where they are living near their son and daughter-in-law. Their new address is: 2665 Van Pelt Blvd., Roseburg, OR 97471. Their phone numbers are not changing.

Summer Gardens at St. Andrews.
Be sure to take a moment and walk through the Courtyard and gardens at our lovely church. Our landscaping crew has done an amazing job again this year. There are annuals planted, perennials blooming, trees and shrubs trimmed, and new soil laid. Making our church a beautiful place in downtown Chelan is an outreach we share with our community and all of the visitors from out of town. Thank you to our volunteers for your many hours of time and care!
Habitat For Humanity Yard Sale
The annual Habitat for Humanity Yard Sale at the Methodist Church in Manson was a great success. Betty reported that they grossed almost $5000! It takes a host of volunteers many hours to put on the this event and the results are a testament to their hard work and commitment. All proceeds raised from the yard sale are donated to our local Habitat For Humanity. If you would like to volunteer please call Betty Pettit for more information.
