Altar for St. Andrew's

Jack Cremeans, a retired Department of Commerce economist who was director of business analysis, cut down a walnut tree on his property in Glenwood a few years ago. Dr. Cremeans and his son had the wood milled, and Dr. Cremeans stored it in his barn to cure.

Last summer, the Rev. Harry Brunett, the vicar of Dr. Cremeans' church, St. Andrew's Episcopal Church worshiping at Union Chapel, announced that the church would begin a new weekly worship service at Bushy Park Elementary School.

Church members scrambled to assemble everything needed to convert the Bushy Park cafeteria into a Sunday worship space. They had a worship platform, a lectern and religious accouterments, but they lacked an altar.

Dr. Cremeans volunteered to make one. In his home shop, he worked on his beautiful piece of walnut. He created a simple, contemporary altar table for the church. St. Andrew's began its community worship service using the new altar in September.

In December, at the church's annual meeting, the congregation presented Dr. Cremeans with a certificate of thanks. A plaque recognizing his contribution adorns the altar he made.

Mr. Brunett considers St. Andrew's a community church, whose members help make their church a lighthouse in the community. One mission of St. Andrew's is its outreach ministry.

St. Andrew's holds Sunday services at Union Chapel at 8 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. or at Bushy Park at 9:15 a.m. for worship and 10 a.m. for Sunday school and adult education. A coffee hour is held afterward.

Call 489-4035.

Reflections winners

Congratulations to students Andrew Weisman and Michelle Waters, winners this year of Clarksville Middle School PTA's Reflections contest.

Andrew's music entry, an original piano composition called "Personal Best," and Michelle's literature entries in creative writing are being judged at the county level through the Howard County PTA Council.

Michelle's entries include "Last One," which describes the endangered gray wolf.

Reflections is a national PTA program designed to encourage student expression in the cultural arts.

River Hill meetings

If your children will attend River Hill High School, either next year or later, Principal Scott Pfeifer encourages you to take part in meetings about the new school.

At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, neighbors will meet to discuss the schedule for River Hill. Organizing a school schedule requires many decisions, and you can be part of the deliberation.

Students, parents and community members will have a voice in choices about River Hill. Mr. Pfeifer promises that students will have a chance to escape from the adults who attend the meeting and can "do their own thing." Come to the meeting, or call Mr. Pfeifer at 313-7120.
