From Kirk Eichenberger…

Hi all,

Your vestry members are putting little notes in the newsletter so the congregation can get to know them a bit better, and it’s my turn.

My wife Peggy and I joined St Barnabas in 2016 when we moved to Bainbridge Island from Harbor Springs, Michigan. We moved here to be closer to our children (and grandchildren) who had relocated to the Seattle area. I am now retired, having previously worked as a forester for the US Forest Service. I like playing with our grandchildren, hiking in the mountains and travel. Since travel and playing with the grandkids have been seriously limited this year, I decided to concentrate on knitting, specializing in a watch cap pattern from Churchmouse; I’ve found plenty of time to make hats for everyone in the family.

I have previously served as the vestry liaison to the stewardship committee and I am also involved with our Sacred Ground curriculum. Read the full note here
