News and Events

The New & Improved Ark

The ark in the yard of the Parish House was given to St. Francis Church in loving memory of Max and Ruth Reger by all their children. It is a pleasant reminder to some of us in the parish of Max and Ruth who were members of the parish for many years. The yard of the parish house is filled many days of the week with children from St. Francis Day School and families in the community who bring their children to play. The Vestry and the Day School teachers and children express thanks to Rob and Nancy Bole who continue to help with maintenance on the ark and to Mike DeLorenzo, Steve Ross, and James Segers who recently painted the ark.

Girl Scout Gold Award

My name is Macy McDaniel and I am with Girl Scout Troop 1891 here at St. Francis. I am currently working on my Girl Scout Gold Award Project. Part of my project is clearing a trail at ICC and planting new plants along this trail. I am planning a work day on Sunday April 22nd from 2-4 as part of Earth Day, everyone is welcome. If you are able to donate any of the plants listed below, contact me at (828) 748 8075. Any help will be appreciated!
