  • Annual Dues. It is time to send our annual dues to Aylesford. The dues for 2017 are $50.00 and are due in January. Please give your payment to our Treasurer, Julie. She will combine all our dues into one payment and send it to Aylesford.
  • Aylesford Visitation. Sr. Libby will be here in February for the annual Aylesford visitation. Because of this, the regular community meeting has been moved to Sunday, February 12 at 2:30 pm. The meeting will be held in the Peace Center. This is a change from your 2017 calendar — the meeting will not be held on February 19.
