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 TuesdayвЂ™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.
