At the Christmas tree giveaway on Saturday, Dec. 13, we gave away all 135 trees and 10 wreaths. Kylie Leiker, one of the architects from Shalom Baranes Associates who helped design the new St. Matthew’s, was present to engage with the community, answer questions, and explain the design. There was a great spirit to the day and the joy of giving a gift to the community was in the air. There were a lot of smiles as people left the St. Matthew’s lot with their Christmas tree!
