Emmanuel’s 149th Congregational Meeting

Congregational Meeting Review and Results

Thanks to all for making the 149th Annual Meeting such a wonderful experience. At just under 25 minutes, we may have set a record for the shortest such meeting in Diocesan history!

Susan Maule, Heather Costantino, Frances Mason, and Ingrid Riseley were chosen by lottery to join the Vestry. Peter Schlehr was chosen to be the alternate if we need one. Our Thanks to Sandy Cormack, Katy Dallam, Kevin Fleming, and Peggy Lauterbach for allowing their names to go into the hat as well.

Thanks to Peter Costantino for the superb quiche we enjoyed as the meeting began, and to those who provided coffee cakes and other treats as well.

That so many people had read the reports online was a big help, allowing us to save a bundle on printing costs. That said, we do have copies available for anyone who would like one.


The Annual Congregational Meeting of Emmanuel Church is slated for Sunday, 29 January 2017. We will hold only one service that day, at 10:00 AM. The meeting will follow immediately after the service.
