Our Generosity in Action honorees this month are Jake Mehrman and Bowen Barrs! Bowen is the Hospitality co-chair. He and Jake do the shopping every Sunday morning and then come in and help the coffee host — and they have happily filled in when we had no host! Jake and Bowen installed our lovely new coffee brewing and water filtration systems, and Jake got the power back to the kitchen the morning of the Spaghetti dinner fundraiser.
They routinely (and without fanfare or recognition) come and do landscaping upkeep on the property — most notably the ongoing upkeep of the asiatic jasmine bed between the sanctuary and the parking lot and keeping the upper parking lot free of leaves and debris.
Bowen was one of the speakers for Mark Stewart’s Christmas play, and Jake is the leader of our safety team that helps us stay safe by keeping a vigilant eye out Sunday mornings.
Next time you see them, make sure to give them a BIG thanks for all that they do…and wish them a happy 30th anniversary as well!
