Pohick Post

October 2018

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

This year's Apple Butter and Country Fair weekends were wonderful outreach events to the community! We had banner weather on Fair Day, leading to cabin-fever weary families coming out in droves. We actually sold out of apple butter on Fair Day for the first time in many years! Kudos to Tom Goeller, our Fair Chair, to Randy & Prudence Brooks, our Apple Butter Coordinators, and to all our many volunteer leaders and helpers for all their hard work in making this year's events a great success!

As we move into October, we begin with a bittersweet celebration: bidding farewell to Don & Chris Binder after Don's service as Pohick's Rector for more than 17 years. Come on out to give them a great send-off to Jerusalem at their Farewell Reception on Saturday, October 6, 4 - 7 pm in the Common Room. Don's final services as Rector will be the next morning--another time for our parish family to celebrate these many years of ministry together.

Later in the month, we will have our Fall Clean-up Day on Saturday, October 20, 9 am - 2 pm, as well as an Organ Recital and Reception on October 28 at 3 pm, observing the 50th anniversary of our wonderful instrument and the completion of its recent renovations.

In his column this month, our Rector reflects on his years of ministry at Pohick, as well as upon some remaining challenges ahead. Elsewhere, Rev. Lynn and our Sr. Warden lay-out the current status of the transition process. Also, read about our ongoing renovations in the church, parish house, and grounds, as well as some historical reflections, music notes, and Don Brownlee's Anglican Communion round-up. Finally, don't forget to make an Appointment for your Picture in the New Pictorial Directory, October 26 - 27!

Read about these items and much, much more in this month's E-Post!
