Bev Gustafson Retires as Secretary and Communicator Editor
On Sunday June 16 we held a special coffee hour to mark the retirement of Beverly Gustafson as Secretary and Communicator editor. Bev took care of many things behind the scenes that helped the parish run smoothly. She picked up and sorted the mail, saving me from dealing with junk mail. She took the vestry minutes and sent them out in time for us to review before the next meeting. (A rare thing in a volunteer organization.) Bev also arranged the main bulletin board so that it always looked neat, tidy, and good. (Equally rare.) By far her hardest job was getting the schedule of servers filled and all the articles in so that she could lay out and print the Communicator.
Of particular value to me was Bev's skill as an editor. She proof read the bulletins, took them to the print shop, picked up the printed copies and delivered them to church. While preparing the Communicator Bev read and edited my articles, caught my typos, and corrected my grammar. On rare occasions she declared an article to be incomprehensible and sent it back for a rewrite.
Thank you Bev, for your many years of faithful service at Church of the Holy Communion.
