New SJUC Planting Day Team: Three new members have joined the Planting Day Team: Richard Cobanli, Carolyn Haverstock and Jennifer Mallette.  A great big “THANK YOU!” to Grant Kerr, Connie Corkum and Rick Fullerton who served as members for the first term.  Rev. Matthew is continuing as a member with Laura-Jayne Hambly-Fournier and Jim Gunn as Co-Chairs. The new Team met this past week and has two more meetings scheduled before the end of February. The Team will report to the SJUC Council on January 26th and at the annual meeting on February 15th.  Its top priorities, at this point, are to support the Planting Day outcomes that are already getting underway or being considered and to have some type of “planting day” for the full congregation in the spring.
