Dear Fellowship Members–
The memorial service for Fellowship member Jim Marshal will take place 2:00 PM SUNDAY, JANUARY 14, at Kendal in Oberlin–the same day as our regular service. To free folks who are interested in attending the service for Jim, we have decided to cancel our service that day in Sandusky. We hope to reschedule our speaker Julie Didelot for later in the spring.

If you can’t join us for the party, please mail your check to our treasurer–

take over. If you are willing to serve on the Board, please contact Bill Djubek ASAP at email@example.com
Due to a speaker issue, we will not be hearing our scheduled presenter Sunday but the one who was supposed to speak last month. So . . .
