Two dozen helped set up, and then take down Christmas decorations
Good Thursday to you,
Here is a letter from Altar Guild member Ruth Bartunek which names all those who helped with the decorating for Christmas this year. It's quite an effort, and I have to say that Bethany surely has one of the most beautifully decorates premises I've seen. There are some photos of the takedown below.
