There will be a Special called business meeting, Wednesday, June 22, 5:30 pm. 

From the Properties Committee:
A motion to buy a new van for the church (2015 Ford Transit); this transaction will include trading in the 1994 van and the 2004 van. The cost of the Transit is $22,500; we will get $6,500 for the trade-ins. The special designated van account has just under $14,700 in it at this time. The church will pay for the new van in full, with Finance Committee deciding exactly where to take the balance of approximately $1,300.
