Following the success of last year’s Vacation Bible Camp, our ministry leaders are gearing up for another successful camp at the beginning of June, and are looking for volunteers for all positions, including: director, adult volunteers, student volunteers and campers. We would like to see as many of you involved as possible in order to continue this very energized and beneficial program for our youth. For more information and to sign up for all positions, please contact Mrs. Meropi Martini at cherryvillefarms@earthlink.net. Thank you so much!

Elmwood cemetery, located in North Brunswick, is offering a discount in March to our parishioners who are thinking about the purchase of a plot, and want to come in to prearrange. They want to support church members who keep the traditional ways. They are offering a 10% discount for those who purchase 1-3 graves; a 25% discount for those who purchase 4-9 graves; and a 50% discount for those who purchase 10+ graves. In  other words, if 5 couples from the church want to each purchase 2 graves, for a total of 10, they will give the group a 50 % discount. If people from the church have been thinking about settling their affairs, March would be the time to take action. Please call Eleanor Malloy at (732) 545-1445.
