ST. PAUL'S PATTER
KELLI IS LEAVING: Our parish administrator Kelli Mossgrove will begin a new job in two weeks. She will be working for the RWJ Corporation of Sebring, OH. It is a 75-year old, family-owned business. They design, install and service sprinkler systems for commercial buildings in three states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia). Kelli will be the office manager, handling all of the accounting duties as well as insurance certification for the jobs in all three states, Bureau of Worker's Compensation and the liaison with the Union for the workers on the human resources side.
We wish her well on her new venture. A “purse” has been established, to collect monetary gifts anyone might wish to make, in appreciation for her ten years of service to St. Paul’s. Checks may be made out to St. Paul’s and notated “Kelli.”
Beginning Sept. 6, David Lewis, treasurer, and Rev Barbara will be covering financial and clerical duties until a new parish administrator can be found. Volunteer work in the office is welcome! Especially folding the bulletins on Fridays.
