on attending a two or four year college or university the following fall. Applicants should have been
active in some aspect of parish life - acolyte, choir, Sunday school, youth group, lay reader, etc. The
award is intended to help defray the cost of text books. Applications are due by April 30th. The
award will be announced at church on May 18th at the 9:30 service honoring all graduating seniors.
NOTE: Sunday School starts at 10:45, so there is no need to leave the service before it is over.
The Sunday School NEEDS Your Help
We are looking for volunteers to teach in the Sunday School for the 2008-2009 school year. In
particular, we are looking for teachers and assistants for Pre-K/Kindergarten Godly Play. There will
be in-house training for this class for all those interested. We are also looking for teachers for the
1st/2nd grade class which will begin using the Share the Joy curriculum next year. We really need
your help. We would like to have as many teachers available next year as possible so that we can
offer more flexibility to our volunteers and provide the support the Sunday School needs to
accommodate growth. Please, if you would like to volunteer or you think you might be interested
and need more information, do not hesitate to contact Dawn Campbell at 410-672-7565 or email

St. Anne’s Website — The Next Generation
St. Anne’s is in the midst of a complete overhaul of its website. The new site will incorporate more
graphics, an easier way to navigate the site, and more information you can use about the church. It
will have easy-to-use online forms, so that we can sign people up for youth events or create an
“online visitor card” where people can tell us about themselves when they visit our website. It will
have a photo gallery where photos of our parish life will be published. It will have a calendar
function, tools to present online video, and much more. We’re excited about this new project, and
appreciate your patience during this period of transition.
St. Anne’s Picture Books
Do you have your picture album of our members yet? If not, they are available to our members at
the Parish Office during the week. All Active members are entitled to one copy per family. Call or

a try. You’ll be glad you did!

PARISH NURSE NEWS
Blood Pressure Sunday is Today
There will be a station at the church following both services for blood pressures, as well as a
station at the parish house following the 9:30 service.
Health Tip: Cancer
In my brief 3 months as your Parish Nurse, I have been struck by the number of parishioners who
are being evaluated or treated for cancer. As a cancer survivor myself, I can relate to how daunting
and frightening the process can be. The American Cancer Society suggests the following steps to
take when you have been diagnosed with Cancer.
1. Research as many options for treatment as you can find. Learn expected benefits, side effects.,
risks and trade-offs.
2. Make sure your sources of information are reliable. One to consider is www.cancer.gov.
3. Realize that all cancer treatment comes with some degree of uncertainty but being as
informed as you can may result in a better outcome.
Our Parish Nurse, Cindy Steele, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 443-534-4684.
If you have questions about what a parish nurse does, or would like to arrange a visit, please give
her a call.
Bulletin Announcements and Tieline
The deadline for submitting BRIEF Sunday announcements for the bulletin is the preceding
Wednesday morning by 10:00 a.m.
The deadline for the May issue of the Tieline is on Friday, April 11, by 3:00 p.m. Email your articles
to Ginny Hustvedt at email@example.com. Late submissions cannot be accepted.
When emailing, please remember to include your name and phone number in case there is a
question. Mark the subject of the email as “Tieline article”. Email all communication to
firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 410-267-9333, ext. 202.
The website is updated weekly. The deadline for information to be added to the website is Tuesday
at noon, and information will appear by close of business Wednesday. This is also the deadline for
information to be included in our (approximately) weekly e-mails. For something that might be of
interest to the community, we can put out a press release. However, we generally need two weeks
lead time. That, of course, can be changed if something comes up unexpectedly.
