St. Andrew's Calendar

Need a ride to Sunday services or some other St. Andrew's event?
Bad weather making you nervous? Car in the shop? Given up driving? No problem!
We can help with weekly or one-time transportation. Membership Commission member Dick Dabrowski is currently coordinating St. Andrew's Share-A-Ride Program. Please speak with him at coffee hour after the 10:00 a.m. service on Sundays or telephone him at his home (978-448-3264). He will match you up with a St. Andrew's volunteer driver in your neighborhood.

NOTE: Most (but not all) of the images on this Calendar are links--go ahead and try them.
