This committee met
regularly throughout the year and considered and acted on the following:
Nine new bricks were added to the Memorial Garden pathway this year.
These include a replacement brick which added a departure date to
Pastor Barskdale's brick, and a new brick for Pastor Flippin. An
updated list of inscribed bricks was sent to the Church office and
also to the Church Webmaster (Red Mosely) who did a great job
updating the list on the Church web site.
The garden has grown by leaps and bounds this year and bushes
required more trimming than in the past. In addition to trimming,
planting 2 new rose bushes, adding pine straw and pulling weeds, a
new holly was purchased and planted in the Garden to fill the void
that was created with the loss of the elm tree some time ago.
Work to clean and organize the Archive Closet and complete the
project to create and update scrapbooks has been finished. The Closet
looks great and the albums are a work of art. Thanks go out to both
Allena Sperry and Donna Souerwine for all their hard work. One album
at a time has been on display in the Narthex since mid-June.
During the year the following monies donated have been used for St.
Matthew Current and Mission, the Building Fund, Fellowship Hall
carpet, World Hunger, Boy Scout Troop #2, choir, music, stamps,
Memorial Garden maintenance, archive material and the 2010 Chrismon
trees and stands. The Memorial
Fund Treasurer's Report for 2011 is attached. The wish
list currently is empty, and all designated funds have been
disbursed or are on hold for future projects.
Officers for 2011 were Randall Craven, President; Jean Wing,
Treasurer; and Sandra Craven, Secretary and at the November meeting
they were unanimously reelected for 2012. Other Committee members
include Betty Davidson, Sandra Hansen, and Allena Sperry.
As the Memorial
Committee continues to work to be responsible stewards of monies
donated to our care, we thank you for your confidence and continued
support. As always, thanks also go out to each Memorial Committee
member for his/her dedication and work.
