Below is my conception of our HHD schedule for your planning in advance.  A gentle reminder that our new fiscal year begins July 1. Many have already had an opportunity to contribute toward our new year. Many have also requested that I send a copy of our Quick Books record of contributions and pledged levels made form 7/1/11 to 6/30/12 showing any contributions outstanding. This is a confidential request, person by person who requests it from me alone. To request your record, please contact me as the need arises.


We will be using St. Andrew for our rites this HHD. Regularly scheduled Shabbat services will continue at Patriot Heights as contributions will support them.  I will be sending to all members the Welcome Sheet for the holy days, after August 31. This sheet, like 2010 should be presented to the greeter at St. Andrew for your safety and comfort during these troubling times. To be clear, we have had no indication of difficulty or problems reported to us by the CRC or any agency. Our Due Diligence and stewardship teach us to plan ahead. I know you appreciate this practice.
