A WEST CHELMSFORD UNITED METHODIST CHURCH MEMBER plans to be working for the Coast Guard and hopes to rent a room in this area for either 3.5 or 15.5 months. Douglas Gordon writes: “I am 67 years young, in good health and will be going home to Chelsford most weekends. I just need a clean and secure place to sleep. I don’t need ‘run of the house’ and probably just need access to a shower and microwave for dinner hour. Please let me know if someone in your congregation would entertain this arrangement. Can furnish security deposit if required.” Interested persons may call Douglas Gordon at 978-590-0692.
