Oh no, not again!  Frozen pipes bring frigid flood!

This time the culprit was a frozen pipe in the attic of Bayne Hall on Sunday.
Pledge clerk Carol Thomas raised the alarm, bringing Edith Pulscak, Peter Ulrich, Adam Graham and Jean Anderson-Jones to turn off the water, and mop up the mess.  Their quick response limited the damage to the 2nd floor classroom, the preschool office below, and the two men's rooms.

Music Minister Adam Graham mans the wet vac.

Drying off the preschool office equipment.

Had Carol not discovered the leak before she left, it would have continued flowing till Tuesday, wetting the entire upstairs floor, and accumulating several feet deep in the downstairs preschool area.  (It's happened before.)  We were very lucky this time.  The copper pipe which froze was located above the attic insulation.  It has now been replaced and covered with insulation.

The Palermo Fund

St John’s is collecting donations to the education trust fund for the Palermo children, whose father was killed by Bishop Cook.  Checks should be made payable to St John’s, with the directive, for Palermo Fund.

The charges brought against Bishop Cook are in the following link.
