|Our church, Lake Park Lutheran, decided to install
solar panels while replacing the old slate roof. They began in July and at the September Block Party the panels were
dedicated (to be powered up shortly thereafter).

Ah, Vicar Matt forgot the first rule - don't immerse the collar! He shall be smited!

I hope that's not the new VW Beetle...it should be a bit bigger. Ok, so it's a solar racer for the kids.
Colleen hard at work!
