Are you interested in a painless way to save some trees – and some money for St. George’s in the bargain? It’s easy! – consider receiving the Dragon, our parish newsletter, by e-mail. If just half of our parishioners were to subscribe electronically, we could save nearly $600 in paper, reproduction, and postage costs, along with more than eight reams of legal-sized paper, every year. The higher the number, of course, the greater the savings.

We understand that some parishioners will choose to continue receiving the hard-copy version, and St. George’s will continue publishing paper editions. But if an electronic subscription works for you, please let Parish Administrator, Janet Koch, know by e-mail stgeorgeoffice@sbcglobal.net.

Thank you!
St. George’s Green Team
