EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES
Education Committee & Church Council held their July meeting on Wed. June 29th. Financial report reflected insufficient funds to cover offerings to missions and Luther High and operating expenses. The Council authorized the treasurer to borrow $12,000.00 internally to meet expenses. Figures for this summer’s Family VBS showed a total attendance of 43 (35 adults; 8 children). Cabinets for 7-8 grade room were approved out of Ray Pralle bequest. Expected enrollment at St. Paul’s School for the coming school year is 45 in grades K-8 and 10 in the Pre-K. Education Committee & Council approved a suggestion that the school have a float in this year’s Fun Days parade (at no cost to church or school).
