Bound for Joy

Our stewardship service and spring pledge drive kick-off. Philia the Owl wants to pledge, maybe, but has a few questions about whether giving us a field mouse will be enough. Led by Rev. Barnaby and canvass chairs Brett Millier and Karl Lindholm. We collected for Vermont Abenaki Artists Association.
