Bill Palmer – Warden (2nd term, 2 years)

Bill Palmer has been a member of Trinity Memorial Church for over twenty years.  He has served on the Vestry, with three terms as Warden, as a member of numerous Commissions and Committees, as Worship Leader, Lector, and Eucharistic Minister.  Especially close to Bill’s heart is his work with the Sunday Canteen.

Bill is looking forward to continuing serving the parish and its people as we move ahead together in faith, in hope, and in love in witness to the Gospel at a critical time in our history as Christians and as Americans.

Nicole Huff - Vestry, (2nd term, 3 years)

I have enjoyed my first term on our Vestry and am very much looking forward to continuing our efforts together.


Much has happened both at Trinity and within my family over the past couple of years. Our son Finbarr just completed his first term as a statistics major at Cornell University.


Our son Fritz was confirmed at Trinity this past April and is in the midst of his college search. Both enjoy serving as acolytes as much as I enjoy serving as a Eucharistic minister.

As a congregation we have so much to be grateful for. Personally, it is an honor to be a part of such a positive, hard working group who give so much of themselves to make Trinity such a wonderful and welcoming place to worship.

Barbara Manzo - Vestry, (2nd term, 3 years)
