St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Annual Meeting
was held Sunday January 31 at 11 am on Zoom.
We elected 1 Warden for a Two-year term, and 3 Vestry members for Three-year terms.
Candidate for Warden: Paul Mikulski
My name is Paul Mikulski. I am married to June (former vestry member) and am the father of Jennifer, James, Andrew and Sarah. I retired 10 years ago after spending 24 years as a police officer in the Town of Amherst. I currently work a part time job and have extra time I would like to give to my community.
Candidate for Vestry: Mike Elkan
My wife Maryanne and I have been attending at St. Paul’s since January, 2019 and I was received into the Episcopal Church the same year. We came from St. Mary’s RC Church in Swormville, where we were active in ministries for a number of years. It’s quite a change here at St. Paul’s from the large parish atmosphere we experienced before – so much more intimate before COVID-19 changed everything. I hope I can add something to the renewal of our community in the months and years ahead.
Candidate for Vestry: Simone Fancher
Member of St. Paul’s since 1994 +/-.
Church school teacher + volunteer.
Former vestry member, acolyte, reader, teacher, youth group advisor of St. John’s, Dunkirk, as a teen/young adult.
Active with various Clarence community, scout & school groups. Mother of 3 children, Jonathan, Stefanie & Christopher. Owner of the Cheesy Chick Cafe and food trucks.
Candidate for Vestry: Michael Matthews
Our family transferred to St. Paul’s in 2014 from St. David’s in West Seneca. At St. David’s I served on the Vestry and Finance Committee during a very successful capital campaign and new building construction to create a new West Seneca Food Pantry. We attend 10 o’clock service where my wife, Tiffany, teaches the kindergarten to 1-st grade Sunday School, our older son, Nathan, is an acolyte and our younger son, Colin, looks forward to being an acolyte soon. Now that we have acclimated as members at St. Paul’s, I feel it is now appropriate to also help contribute and collaborate as a vestry member. I look forward to helping to serve the St. Paul’s community.
