There was a profit of $4005.00 between the wreath sales and the Tree of Lights. Council had previously agreed this money would go towards the turn around in the cemetery. This was the 9th year we have had a Tree of lights. Thanks Leonard and Teresa.
Elections for Holy Trinity, Fr Pierz and parish council will be held on May 7, with nominations being made on April 30.
It was brought up that we could use 4 more picnic tables during the bazaar. Russ offered to donate one. We should look into having a speaker outside for the gun raffle and other announcements made during
the bazaar.
There is some maintenance work needed to be done in the cemetery. We should add more plots, straighten some of the stones and the gates should be painted.
