2017 Annual Parish Meeting

Posted

We worked hard all year long and the Annual Parish Meeting was a time to have some fun!  After the business meeting which was modeled after The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (complete with a visit from The Great Carmac), the meeting adjourned to a DELICIOUS covered dish brunch.  Congratulations to our new Sr. Warden, Bobby Buffington; Jr. Warden, Barb Belt; Treasurer, John Sands; and Vestry Members Candi Boyd, Mac Butts, Ron Ingle and Allison Peteet!  We also welcomed our new Priest Associate, Fr. Donald Fishburne and his wife Sarah.  Many thanks to everyone who made this year’s meeting GREAT!
