a letter from the communication committee

September 3, 2021

Dear Members of Palm,

After a challenging year, we are planning our church directory. On Sunday, September 12th, 19th, and 26th the Communication Committee will have sign-up sheets after the church service in the Gathering Room to schedule dates and times for pictures to be taken in October. There will also be an Information Sheet to complete requesting your address, phone, etc. The photographer will start to take pictures on Saturday, October 2nd. He will be taking pictures on Wednesday and Friday evenings 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm and Saturday’s noon – 6:00 pm. He will not be available on October 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. We will also have some Sundays after church; we will announce those dates when they are available.

When you arrive at the church for your time, please enter the door along Cherry St., at the Multi-Purpose Room. Please wear a mask entering the church. The photographer will be wearing a mask, however, you will need to take off the mask for the picture. We will seat you in the MPR until the photographer is ready for you. The pictures will be taken in the Library Room. Depending on the size of your family, it will take approximately 15-30 minutes. You will be able to select the best picture after you are photographed.

Bob Seward, a photographer from Campbelltown will be taking our pictures. Bob has 25 years’ experience as a photographer. He is a member of Trinity United Church of Christ in Palmyra. He is currently taking pictures for his church’s directory. He will not be charging the church for taking the members’ photos. There will be no pressure to purchase the photos. If you decide to purchase the photos, 20% will be donated to the Palm.

If you have any concerns, please contact Elaine Bender, 717-533-9234 or Sue Kotzatoski, 717-389-5073.
