Norwood News

at the end of June, with a listing price of $700,000. There were extensive preparations to reach this step. The Parish Council met numerous times and had discussions with realtors, engineers and attorneys to make sure the right steps were taken and a proper amount set for the sale. To date, there have been a number of inquiries, but no offers yet.

Here on Atwood Avenue, the roofing consultant, hired by the Council, has produced specifications and has put the job of replacing the roof out to bid. The specs will insure that the bids are "apples to apples". It is anticipated that a contractor can be chosen very shortly and the work will begin soon after. Our architect is being kept up to date to make sure that our new roof will be in sync with any future plans.

In the parish hall you will find minutes of recent meetings and the latest treasurer's report. The Council is committed to keeping everyone up to date. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask (and if we don't have an answer right away, we will get it.)



Donations

It is the time of year when many folks are travelling and are away from their homes. See that Saint George is on your "to do" list before you head out.

Don't forget, when there are significant events in your life, the Church is where you turn first. Remember also, your donations to Saint George at these times are most appropriate, whether in thanksgiving, for health, to mark a birthday or name day, or in memory of a loved one. Envelopes are available in the narthex and in the parish hall.
