CHECK THE LOST & FOUND!!!!!! Items not picked up will be donated

Missing your coat? Did you reach into your pocket and only find that you have ONE glove? Can't see as well without your eyeglasses that seem to have disappeared?

Our lost and found items are really piling up and will be donated to charity on Dec. 19. Please check the L&F bins in the hallway near the choir room.

There are small items such as eyeglasses and electronics kept in a locked drawer in the main office. See one of the office staff.
