Thank you to those who have donated our new hymnals.  We should be receiving the 130 hymnals and two Accompanist loose-leaf hymnals that you so graciously donated around Easter (although we have not received a firm delivery date, yet).  The dedication book plates are ready to be inserted into the new hymnals. When they arrive, they will be un-boxed and inspected for damage and publishing errors. The dedication book plates will be glued on the back of the front cover, and they will be distributed to the pews.

We have surveyed all of the old hymnals and have tabulated who donated them. We are 
currently in the process of obtaining addresses of living relatives, so that we can inform them that they are available if they would like them.  If an old hymnal does not have a dedication book plate, and you would like to have an old hymnal, you will be able to take a copy.

Some of the old hymnals with dedication bookplates are missing. If you think you may have borrowed a copy of the Hymns for the living church hymnal, please look through your bookcases at home. If you find a copy of the hymnal, and it has a dedication bookplate, please return it. If may be the hymnal a donor has been looking for. We would be happy to exchange that copy for a different one.
