And here are a few words from some of the Parishioners of St. Paul's Church:
"Sometimes with all the fellowship, worshiping, special events and projects going on at St. Paul’s we don’t get past Clinton and Carroll Street. And once again while we were looking the other way, our wonderful neighborhood has gone thru changes and transformations. Here at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church we have always prided ourselves as being an integral presence and resource in Carroll Gardens and in this spirit we want to meet our new neighbors and we would like them to get the chance to meet us. 
This Saturday May 30, in Carroll Park from 10 am to 5 pm we will be participating in the Carroll Park Fair. Please come by our table and say hello. Come see what we have been up to for the last 165 years and see what we have planned for tomorrow. We will also have some items for sale, a preview of what we will be offering at our Rummage Sale on June 6 and back at the church there will be hourly tours and refreshments. We look forward to this chance to make some new friends and can’t wait to catch up with the old ones. See you Saturday."
