About the Annual Meeting:

Coffee hour will begin at 11:30 via Zoom. At noon, at the same Zoom address (everyone may stay logged in) the Annual Meeting will begin. We anticipated it will last an hour or less. The Annual Report is available elsewhere on this website. Since it is our practice to distribute financials to those who attend the annual meeting, those who responded to the e-mail invitation sent to voting members will receive their copy via e-mail. Please contact the Verger if you attend and do not receive your copy.

Annual Report for 2020

Trinity Lime Rock’s Annual Report for 2020 is now available for download.

Please CLICK HERE to download the Annual Report for 2020 in PDF format.

Our annual meeting will take place at noon on Sunday, January 24, 2020, via Zoom. Logon credentials will appear in the Trinity Update’s Wednesday and Sunday morning issues.

Customarily we distribute the financial portion of the annual report to voting members who attend the annual meeting. An e-mail invitation was sent on January 19 to voting members of the parish. If you did not receive your invitation, please e-mail geoff@trinitylimerock.org.

It’s been a surprisingly successful year for Trinity, COVID-19 notwithstanding! Enjoy reading about it in the annual report — and see you at the meeting!

Annual Report for 2019

Download the Annual Report for 2019 (to be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Parish on January 19, 2020 (snow date January 26) in Walker Hall at Trinity Lime Rock. As has been our practice, the detailed financial reports will be distributed in paper form at the meeting itself and are not included in this package.

PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS REPORT TO YOUR CELLPHONE OR TABLET!

It is wasteful of resources and harmful to the environment if we were to print copies for everyone of this annual report (25 pages long!) and for those reasons we ask that you follow the meeting on your personal electronic device. While we will have a few printed copies at the meeting for those who do not have cellphones or tablets, your cooperation will help both the parish budget and the environment.

It’s a good idea to download the Annual Report for 2019 at home, since the wireless network at Trinity is probably going to be fairly busy the morning of the meeting.

Thank for for your cooperation!

We’ll be having a different table set-up this year!!

Photos from January 20

In view of the weather, it’s a little bit of a surprise that we actually have photos from January 20 to offer here. However, Trinity Lime Rock has a pretty stalwart congregation!

The weather was absolutely miserable, and the roads were somewhere between poor and terrible due to the snow and ice. As a result, the 10:30 AM service opened with a congregation that was, uummm, sparse. However, latecomers drifted in and things got a lot better as the day went on.

And we held our Annual Meeting and pot luck lunch as scheduled.

Annual Report for 2018

We are very happy to bring you Trinity Lime Rock’s Annual Report for 2018!

For several years now, we have been publishing this document online in advance of the Annual Meeting. This serves more than one purpose. First, it saves a whole bunch of trees! We are not idle at Trinity, and trying to summarize everything we have done for a year in a single document makes for a thick document. (Along with the trees, think of how much it saves on copier expense!). Secondly, and most importantly, it lets everyone in the parish prepare for the annual meeting ahead of time. You can read the report from cover to cover at your leisure and not have to speed read during the early parts of the annual meeting. You can bring it with you to the meeting on your phone or tablet and refer to it as you wish.

The financials will be distributed (on paper) at the Annual Meeting, so they are not included in this report.

To download the Annual Report for 2018 now, simply click the download button.

Thanks to Alexis Dorf, who pulls the whole thing together!!

NOTE: a limited number of paper copies will be available at the meeting. Please save these for people who who not have a portable personal electronic device.

Annual Report for 2017

Trinity’s Annual Report for 2017 is now ready for download.

Please click here to download it:

 Annual Report 2018

This is the report for the year just completed, and is the agenda and basis for discussion at the parish Annual Meeting, which will be held Sunday, January 21, 2018 following a potluck lunch after the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist.

If you are coming to the meeting — and we encourage all members, including young people, to attend, please download a copy of the Annual Report to your personal electronic device to refer to during the meeting.  While we will print a limited number of copies, significant copying expense is saved if parishioners “bring their own”.

If you wish, you may download the annual report at Trinity, but we encourage prior downloading, both so you can read it over at your leisure, and to avoid overtaxing the parish wifi.

As is our practice, the financial reports are distributed at the meeting in paper form.

Reading the annual report is always a worthwhile experience ever if you cannot attend the meeting.  It is amazing what our small parish accomplishes!!

Annual Report for 2016

Here’s Trinity’s Annual Report for 2016!

Annual Report for 2016

Please download your copy by clicking the highlighted file name above.   You may want to print it out at home and read it that way, or you may want to put it on your portable electronic device and bring it with you to the Annual Meeting to refer to.  We do ask that you take advantage of this electronic version, as printing costs are high and only a few copies (for those who do not have internet access) will be available at the meeting.

As has been our practice in past years, the financial reports will be available in hard copy at the meeting itself.

Regardless, please do join us on Sunday after the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist for a pot luck lunch and the Annual Meeting!
