Vestry Notes May 2018

We are experiencing a great spring of worship and service at Trinity.  I hope that you are enjoying the weather, change of season, and opportunity to get outside and experience God’s creation.    

You may remember that in November of 2017, I reported that Vestry had decided to transition the endowment to the financial management of the Trustees of the Funds (TOTF).  This decision was made after a great deal of consideration and tremendous due diligence by the Endowment Committee, the Finance Committee and Vestry; however, almost immediately after the decision had been made questions emerged about certain aspects of the relationship between the TOTF and its participants.  Until those questions are resolved it makes more sense for the Endowment Committee to continue to manage the Endowment.  We are fortunate that we have a cadre of financial and legal experts who are willing to do this.  

Thanks to their efforts the Endowment continues to do well.  Your gifts and bequests to the Endowment make a tremendous difference both now and for the future.  It remains important that we continue to increase the size of our endowment for the long term maintenance of our campus and the fulfillment of our mission.  

On another note, Kat Gemmer and her committee are organizing a wonderful Hunt Country Stable Tour.  If you have not donated or volunteered yet, and you are in the area for Memorial Day weekend, I urge you to pitch in and assist.  

In faith,
