Well, if you found us here, you realized our old address (URL) is no more,
and hopefully we can stay here indefinitely! This summer you can expect
this site to shift to a general community (St. Nazianz) web in which the storm
damage and recovery history section will become just another part. The new
site will contain community news, meeting schedules, and will offer email for
board members. If you have any ideas for what you'd like to see here,
please let us know at email@example.com.

When you walk through a storm hold your head up high and
don't be afraid of the dark. At the end of a storm is a golden sky
and the sweet silver song of a lark. Walk on through the wind, walk
on through the rain, though your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk
on, walk on, with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone.
You'll never walk alone.
