You will find a packet of sticky notes and pencils on the tables in the Hall today.  Please use them to write down items on either or both of the charts on the wall: What we do well at St. Nicholas // What we do not do well at St. Nicholas  (You may jot down as many ideas as you want, but please only one per sticky note.  This information will be incorporated into the discussion at our next 5-Year Plan Forum.)

Please note the new Flower Sigh-up Chart in the narthex (above the Candle Desk). Just sign up for one or more of the areas for flowers for a Saturday/Sunday or a Feast Day, as indicated.  Thanks.
