Annual Meeting Summary

St. Mary's Church held its 127th Parish Annual Meeting on Saturday evening, January 25. With thirty-five people attending, the attendees enjoyed a selection of home-made soups, accomplished the necessary parish business, and heard an entertaining presentation.

The evening began with dinner, which featured the St. Mary’s Soup Cook-off—ten different soups and stews brought be parishioners on which votes were cast for the “best” soup in several categories. (Jim Meador’s Road-Kill Stew was a particular favorite.)

The Annual Meeting began with a review of the written annual reports, including the Annual Parochial Report, the statistical summary required of all Episcopal congregations. Elected to three-year terms on the Bishop's Committee were Serena Kanig Benish and Kirk Hepburn. Elected as Delegates and Alternates to the Diocesan Annual Convention were Michelle Despain, Kirk Hepburn, and Kiffer Card. Thanks and appreciation were given especially to Robert Redd for his service in the past year as the Bishop’s Warden.

The Rev. Deacon Libby Hunter gave a spirited and entertaining overview of the upcoming General Convention of The Episcopal Church in June. Special emphasis was given to the opportunities for volunteers to serve at the convention. Robert Redd and Mary Allen are the Parish Contacts for St. Mary's Church.
