Looking for house/dog sitter July 29-Aug 5

Hi Neighbors: We are going to Maine next week and have had a tough time finding friends who are in town (July 29–Aug 5) to house/dog sit. If you know anyone who might be interested, please share my contact information: mark.temelko@yale.edu or text 315-237-2141.

If anyone is interested, I can provide details about house sitting and watching our sweet old dog, Nani. Thank you!

Over a hundred people came through the old Strong School over the weekend to play a part in bringing our new mural to life. If you were one of them, if you supported the project, if you stopped by to say hi and cheer us on: thank you. You made it happen. …

St. James Episcopal Church Challenge Grant

We at St. James have been blessed with the generous gift of a challenge grant.

Our challenger would also match an overage of $1.00, and yet would definitely rather we think bigger than that! We St. James folk are committed to being a supportive,…
