Our photo of the day depicts Tom "The Chair Man" Nelson, leader of our Chair Campaign, with his able assistant Sarah Morris, daughter of Beth and Jonathan Morris. They were busy tallying results for the Chair Campaign, made necessary by the impending completion of our Building.

During the Spring of 1995, the Chair Campaign endeavored to have us all buy chairs to fit the sanctuary of the new building at $30.00 apiece. We needed 350 chairs for our worship space and we met the goal! The new chairs arrived in time for our first service and lasted us until we replaced them in 2015 as part of a SOM project.

In this last figure we see a scan of a gentle reminder sent to the congregation by Tom Nelson as part of the Chair Campaign. $30.00 a chair sounds like a pretty good deal! And they served us well for 20 years!

As always, please send your additional info and comments to Larry the Lay Leader! (Click) This will help us all to know and remember!

Well, I certainly know the girl - Sarah Morris at Waterbridge Elementary and is that Tom Nelson with her? I don't know what the heck they're doing unless it's tracking the chairs bought for the new building because Tom talked about that a lot.
