Cemetery cleanup

Please make sure to have all cemetery graves cleaned up no later than April 14. All graves must be clear of flowers and decorations to prepare for the mowing season. All items left will be thrown away.

Calling all craftsmen/artists

St. Matthew's will be holding a fundraiser called "How Great thou Art" in July and are looking for artists and crafts people to donate a handmade item. It can be a painting, a sculpture, quilt, stitchery, furniture, jewelry, etc. The idea is to feature the work of the many talented local artisans. Those who would like to make such a donation may contact Diane Huber for more information at (610) 681-7217.
