The Ludtke family moved to Whidbey in 1970, and our first stop was St Augustine’s in-the-Woods. Our sons grew up in this parish, and to a large degree, so did I. It was as a vestry member and a very young Sr Warden that I first experienced true responsibility, if you don’t count motherhood. I think I have served at one time or another on every standing committee with the exception of the Greening Committee, which came along later. It is my privilege to once again take a turn, as we all must, to serve this congregation as a vestry person. Elaine.
