Thanks:  Thanks to all who helped with the memorial service for our dear friend Howard Hickman last Saturday morning.  It was a joyous occasion, complete with snow and glorious sunshine, gorgeous flowers, beautiful music, and the wondrous shared sense of the privilege of knowing Howard and his family.

Diocesan Leadership Conference:  Diocesan Leadership Conference “Opening the Red Doors: What Brought Us In, Will Bring In Others” will be held on Saturday, March 3, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., St. Francis Episcopal Church, Eureka.  Rev. Kimberly Jackson, Associate Rector, All Saints’ Episcopal, Atlanta, will lead.  Registration is $25 and includes lunch.  Register online at tiny.cc/Leadership2018.

Noonday Prayer at Twin Pines:  on Tuesdays at 1:30 has resumed.  We are glad to be back!  It was a joy to see everyone again.  Please feel free to join us for an hour of service and gospel discussion!  We meet in the small dining room at the east end of the main downstairs dining room.

Grief Group:  The grief support group for parents who have lost children will begin meeting at the Hospice office next week rather than at Trinity.  They expressed gratitude for the use of our space for the past two years.  Please take note of the new location and refer anyone who grieves the loss of a child to this wonderful group.

Trivia Night with the Kiwanis!:  The Kirksville Kiwanis are sponsoring a Trivia Night and Silent Auction on March 3, 6 pm – 10 pm at the El Kadir Shrine to raise funds for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program. The entry fee is $25 per person and teams can have as many as 8 people. If you are interested in being part of a Trinity team, see Amy for more details.

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner:  Save the Date!  Our annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner will be held on Saturday, March 17 – but the time will change.  Because it’s a weekend, the parade will be held at 11, so we will begin serving at 11:30 a.m.

Celebration of Ministry: Save the date of May 3rd at 7 pm for our Celebration of Ministry with Bishop Wayne Smith.

Future Bishop’s Committee Meetings:  Please note that the March meeting has been moved from March 11 to March 4.  Meetings are open to all.
