VESTRY FORMS ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE TO CELEBRATE 250TH
The Vestry last week authorized the creation of an Anniversary Committee to begin planning for a year-long celebration in 2018 of St. Peter’s 250th anniversary of its founding in 1768.  The committee will be co-chaired by Gil and Ann Allen.  Those interested in helping to organize events and activities can contact the Allens or the Parish Office.
 
PHIL SHIELDS ELECTED AS TREASURER
Vestry member Phil Shields was elected by the Vestry last week to fulfil the remainder of the term of former Treasurer Julie Milliken who resigned last week for personal reasons.  The Vestry expressed its sincere appreciation for the great work that Julie has done during her tenure in improving our accounting and financial reporting systems. Phil’s term runs through April.
 
ANNUAL MEETING SET FOR APRIL 30     
The Vestry designated April 30, 2017 as the date for the parish Annual Meeting.  A Nominating Committee has been formed, chaired by Sharon Clark, to nominate candidates for three open positions on the Vestry and three Convention delegate positions.  If you are interested in running for those positions or if you know someone who you think would be a good candidate, please contact Sharon Clark.

 

DINNER & A MOVIE: Friday, February 10th at 5:30 p.m., Parish Hall
Please join us in the Parish Hall for dinner and a movie on Friday, February 10th at 5:30 p.m. We will eat dinner together and then watch the Lego Movie. There will be legos to play with and plenty of popcorn to snack on during the movie. All are welcome to attend. If you are planning to attend, please email Melissa Kilmer at
mkilmer17@hotmail.com and let her know how many you have in your group.  This should be a great time of fellowship and we hope that you will join us. 


SAVE THE DATE:  SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER FEBRUARY 28
We conclude our Season after Epiphany on Shrove Tuesday with the traditional Pancake Supper from 5-7 pm in the Parish Hall, hosted by your Vestry.  Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

 
SPRING FOYER GROUP SIGN-UPS
Foyer groups are an excellent way for members of St. Peter's to get to know each other better in a setting away from church. Groups of 6 - 8 adults will gather monthly for dinner and socializing.   Participants are placed in groups that will stay together for the months of February through May.
Home groups: Each month a different person/couple will host the dinner and provide the drinks and simple entree.  Others in the group will provide the balance of the meal.
 
Restaurant group(s): If you prefer not to entertain in your home or just want to try something different.  Each month a different person/couple will be the host and make the arrangements for a restaurant. Participants will pay for their own dinners.
 
Family groups: If you’d like to be part of a group that includes your children. We need several families to sign up in order to do this.
 
There are only 2 "rules" for the dinners:
•    No discussion of church business
•    The evening should end by 9 PM.
 
There will be a sign-up sheet during coffee hour or you can e-mail Ann Allen at ann.allen@comcast.net or call her at 410-546-9068.
 
DIOCESAN CONVENTION INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION

The 149th Annual Convention of the Diocese of Easton will take place Friday, February 24 through Saturday, February 25 at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MD.  Parishioners from all the parishes in the Diocese of Easton are welcomed to attend.  Information on the Convention program and registration is available now on the Diocesan website:
