Highlights from the May 2011 vestry meeting:

  • The grant for the boiler has been received and the boiler has been installed.
  • We are going to receive a gift from the estate of Joan Collins in the amount of $10,000. As per Joan’s wish, the money will be used to help with St. Stephen’s daily expenses (the Vestry and congregation of St. Stephen’s thanks the Collins family for this generous donation).
  • Bibles will be given to the high school graduates on June 12.
  • An ad for St. Stephen’s was placed in the Tribune-Review. A motion was made to pay the $450 cost of the ad. The motion was made by Ethel Balas and seconded by Ron Dern.
  • The buffer/polisher will be looked at by Lemco. If the cost of the repair is under $200, it will be repaired. If over, it will be replaced. Motion made by Jim Campbell and seconded by Frank Yesko.
  • St. Stephen’s Dart Ball Team will replace the tiles in the ceiling of the undercroft. The damaged ones will be kept to be used during dart ball season.
  • The Pastoral Committee reported visiting five people this past month.
  • We will have another fish fry in the near future.
  • On May 22, we will have a meeting after the service to discuss what we are looking for in our new Bishop.
