St. George wishes to acknowledge and thank the following people for their service and continued support to the parish:
Many thanks to Jim Bowe, who paints small decorative items, stools, Christmas ornaments every year to sell at the Fall Bazaar, donating the proceeds to the Teuta Ladies Society. Due to the COVID pandemic restrictions, the Fall Bazaar has been cancelled the past 2 years, but Jim continued to paint. He recently brought in his wares to sell at coffee hour. Jim has raised over $700 to date which he is donating to the church. Jim still has items to sell so please support him and his efforts.
Fr. Sergei pointed out to the parish his personal thanks to Louise Karoli Gallagher and Bob Lazar who changed the table vestments for the Nativity Fast period. Both Louise and Bob faithfully change the vestments to the appropriate color during the liturgical year. Fr. Sergei specifically noted that they continued to change the vestments in 2020 when services were cancelled during the height of the COVID pandemic, just to keep the church prepared and ready for the time we would reopen for services.
Finally, many of you saw the large hole next to the entrance into the church on Sunday. Sewer blockage outside of the church from root infiltration into our sewer line required major excavation, root cutting, and sewer line replacement to re-establish functioning restrooms and the church hall kitchen sinks. Many thanks to Joe Galich, Bill Kovachi, and Bob Lazar who spent hours at the church over a 10-day period so workers could have access to make the repairs.
