The vestry hosted a variety of eats and treats for coffee hour after Sunday service this morning. As parishioners enjoyed their favorite snacks with coffee, apple cider, or another beverage of choice, Melissa Puzan called the 2017 Annual Meeting of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church to order. After Deacon Brad Allard led us in prayer, Melissa had to verify quorum of 38 qualified parishioners before she could proceed with the meeting, and as you can see, we easily reached our quorum.
Brenda Amato was identified as our Clerk of Record.
We had three vacancies in the vestry to fill, and Our Lord provided us with five nominees to consider.
We were also blessed with a sufficient number of nominees for delegates and attendees for the Diocese Convention scheduled during the weekend of November 3-4 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Debbie Murphy and Lisa Nelson counted ballots in another room, allowing parishioners time to review the submitted committee reports. Reports were accepted quickly, and then it was time to announce our new vestry members and delegates to the Diocese Convention.
On behalf of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, the vestry would like to thank all who were able to attend the 2017 annual meeting, and we would like to extend sincere appreciation to our outgoing vestry members: Jennifer Luurtsema and Scott Morton.
