       not filled out one of the forms, please see Fr. Richard or Ellen.
    b) It is our practice not to take items for the meeting from the floor at the time of the meeting, but rather, to include all items ahead of
        time on the agenda. If there is an item you would like discussed at the annual meeting, please let any person on the mission
        board (Fr. Richard, Darin, Ellen or Jessie) know.
    c) An agenda and draft budget will be available for your consideration prior to the meeting.
    Please mark down this important event on your calendar and plan to attend if at all able.

3. We will be conducting a bottle drive to raise funds for the Saint Aidan's church school and building renovation on Saturday, November 15th.
    Please let Darin know if you are interested in volunteering the use of a vehicle, collecting or helping to sort bottles.

4. By popular request, we are planning a celebration of St. Nicholas Day for the children of our community on Saturday, December 6th.
    Suggested activities are: akathist for Saint Nicholas, food bank drive, lunch, cookie decoration, visit from Saint Nicholas with his life
    story and shoes filled with gifts. If you are interested in helping with this event, please speak to Presbytera Jaime.

5. A new phone directory is available downstairs. Note the section for special days (by month) at the back. Please use the directory as
   a part of your intercessory prayers for the community.

6. If you have any receipts for donations in kind to Saint Aidan's (anything you purchased for the Church that you would like to donate),
    please submit your receipts to Ellen as soon as possible, so that we can evolve an accurate budget.
