News & Events (Cont’d.)
Special Thank You
Special thanks to all those responsible for the replacement
of the counter top in the main kitchen. To the Funeral
Reception Committee for their donation of $900 toward the
cost of materials, to Ivan MacPhee and the volunteers that
worked with him to craft and install the new counter tops,
and to the individuals who did such a thorough clean up
job afterwards. This welcome upgrade will benefit all those
who use the kitchen for years to come.
Kitchen Items
While cleaning the kitchen following the installation of the
new countertops, a number of items were discovered
which do not belong to the church. These items have been
placed on a table outside of the kitchen at the bottom of
the stairs. We would like people to see if they might have
left any of these items at the church and, if so, take them
home. The table will be set up for a few weeks and then
any remaining items will be given to Beacon House.
Pancake Supper
The Missions Committee would like to thank all those
people who helped make last Tuesday’s Pancake Supper
such a successful event. Approximately $600.00 was
raised towards supporting mission endeavours by the
Mayich family and Meaghan Whitehouse. The Silent
Auction will conclude this Monday at 1:00 pm and
successful bidders will be notified during the week.
Special Scams Presentation At LAFF
You are invited to LAFF to attend a presentation by the
Rotary Club on how to recognize scams on Thursday
morning, March 17th at 9:45 a.m. in the Heffler Room.
Join us for an important and informative presentation
followed by "green tea" and refreshments in honour of St.
Patrick's Day. Please call Miriam at 864-6208 if you plan
