February 6, 2015
Dear St. Aidan’s Family:
The Vestry of St. Aidan’s approved our Parish budget for 2015 at the January meeting.  The Vestry members were eager to have the Parish family understand some of the details of the budget and asked us to share them in this special communication.
As you have seen in our announcements, our pledged donations for 2015 are less than the pledges for 2014 by about $13,000.  We are very grateful to everyone who has pledged and to those who plan to make regular donations to St. Aidan’s.  Fortunately, our income in 2014 exceeded our expenses by approximately $14,700.  We have placed this amount in reserve and $13,500 will be used in order to balance our budget in 2015.
We wish to thank everyone who helped to make 2014 such a positive financial year for St. Aidan’s.   You accomplished this by completing your pledge, helping to control expenses, donating to special funds such as altar flowers or Vacation Bible School and by making your donations through automatic payments from your bank, to name a few.    
This reserved cash will help us for 2015, but we need everyone’s help to have healthy finances in future years when excess cash will not be available.  You can help by pledging for the first time, making the pledge you meant to make for 2015 or increasing the amount you have already pledged.  
We will present the 2015 budget to the Parish on Sunday, February 15th between the two services at 9:30 a.m.  The Stewardship / Finance Committee would like the opportunity to answer your questions in person and thank you by providing some homemade sweets to go with your coffee that morning.  Please join us!
Faithfully,
The Stewardship / Finance Committee
Chuck Marks, Senior Warden, Alice Meinicke, Sharon Metz, Tom Metz, Nancy Newhams, Parish Administrator, Grace Parkinson, Treasurer, Bill Seeley, and Rev. Mark Wilkinson
