Cemetery—Spring Clean-up day at the cemetery is Saturday, April 13th 9am. Bad weather date is Saturday, April 20th the same time. The lawnmower at the cemetery is 5 years old and is being replaced this year. Anyone with interest in buying the old mower should attend the March equipment sale at Regnier’s Auction House in Canby, 9am on 3/23. The old mower is being sold on auction with a $2500 reserve. The cemetery committee feels we can get more on an outright sale than was offered on trade-in. In the event that no bids are received in excess of the reserve, the old mower will be traded in towards the purchase of the replacement. Some of the flower pot stands that haven’t been used in the last few years are going to be tagged and moved to the garden shed to make mowing easier and quicker. If you find that a stand has been moved in error, please call Dave Dovre at 828-6453 and he will quickly replace the stand with apologies for the inconvenience.
Cemetery Sexton Needed—If you would like to volunteer, please  contact the council or the church office.

April Walk Around—Furnaces for Church—The cost of 2 new furnaces with parts and labor is $10,367.43.  The Endowment Fund will match 1 to 1, up to $5,000.  If you at any time would like to donate to this, please mark that on your offering envelope or designate it to the Building Fund.  Offerings are welcome anytime between now and April 28th.  As of April 12th, we have received $2,105.00 towards this!  Thank you!!
