Stewards of the Month – August 2018

Thank you to our Steward of the Month for August, Nancy Neff! Go enjoy the new section of the front garden, in front of the fenced play area. Thanks to Nancy’s guidance and devotion to environmental principles, it is a demonstration garden of native plants that evolved to thrive in our climate. And it’s beautiful. Nancy, we are so appreciative!

We are also grateful for these folks’ stewardship of our church community:   

Glenda Jones for her loving care of the garden

Sally Ahnger for tireless work to finalize the solar canopy installation, along with Wynne Furth, Buzz Frahn, David Chen, Bill Hilton, Jeb Eddy, Sven Thessen, Rafael Gomez, & the late Fred Buelow.

Richard Cassel for ongoing help getting our electrical system updated

Jeneen Nammar for launching the 1st- and 3rd-Sunday Praying Together: A Prayer Group Drawing from Many Traditions

Edie Keating, along with staff members Dan Harper and Barb Greve, for providing fun activities for children during the summer

Eric Bier for coordinating the South Palo Alto Neighborhood Circle, and for running the 1st Sunday Community Sing and the Sunday meditation group.

Marilyn Austin and Jerry Strom for hosting the MV LA LAH Neighborhood Circle’s gathering at their home

The many people who honored Phyllis Cassel and her family by helping with her memorial service: Lorraine Kostka, Carol Steinfeld, Jennifer Ramberg, Susan Plass, Linda Henigin, Kristi Iverson, Sven Thesen, Kate Kramer, Genevieve Thesen, Buzz Frahn, Sara Newcomb, and Geetha Rao (reception); William Phelps (sound); Harry Wachob and Paul Kostka (ushering); and again Carol Steinfeld for the gorgeous flower arrangements.
