Diocesan Headquarters - On the evening of Monday November 22, 2004 members of the Shadeland Committee met at the Diocesan headquarters in Mars, Pa with His Grace Bishop Dr. Mitrophan presiding. Reports at the meeting included a financial update from the Shadeland Gala held in October, showing a net profit of $50,465.94.

Taking into consideration not just the financial, but overall success of the "Evening for Shadeland" held in Weirton this fall, the committee quickly began exchanging ideas for next year's fundraiser. While no difinite plans are made, the general consensus was that another fundraising be held next fall at a different location in the diocese.
The committee also discussed next year's Diocesan Days to be held on Saturday August 6 and Sunday August 7, 2005. A tentative theme was presented and plans are presently underway in search of possible guest speakers for the event.

After a short winter break the Shadeland Committee will meet again in February. The committee plans on having printed materials available for all clergy in regards to next year's Diocesan Days with the theme and schedule of events at the Diocesan Annual Assembly, to be held on Friday and Saturday February 25-26, 2005 at the St. George Church in Canton, Ohio.
