WS Bellows Construction completed repair to the drive mechanism on May 9, 2013 and the roof may now be opened normally.
The south-side hatch opening chain drive guide cogs had become misaligned causing a coarse grinding - type noise and there was a risk of the chain jumping the sprockets, making closing/opening the roof hatch inoperable. The guide sprockets have been realigned and the set screws tightened to keep it that way.
Joe LoCicero sends this very eloquent note to encourage us to go see the exhibit:
"The new James Turrell exhibit at the MFAH is absolutely phenomenal. It gave me a whole new perspective on the immense talent of one of LOFM's primary benefactors."
The Finance Committee has noticed that a lot of expense reimbursements are not submitted using the LOFM Expense Reimbursement Form. The Finance Committee has asked the Treasurer not to reimburse expenses unless they are submitted with that form, which requires a signature and a description of the expense, and what committee to assign the expense to.
So in the future, please use this form! The link to it is on the Procedures and Forms Page, or here:

The children will present their spring play at the rise of meeting this Sunday.
Pam Arnold, clerk of Bayou Quarterly sent us this announcement:

Join us for worship, fellowship, sharing our talents and interests, networking and exploring what it means to be a Friend in our particular culture.
