Our first get together will be on Thursday October 25th, 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. If you know of someone who isn’t able to get out very often please speak with Rev Andrea so she can invite them. Transportation can be arranged. Volunteers are needed to help with assisting our guests in the elevator, cleaning up the kitchen afterwards, and visiting with our guests.  For more information speak with Rev Andrea. Please note that we can only accommodate 15 to start, so please register early.

FROSTY’S FAIR (Saturday, November 3rd):  Frosty’s Fair is fast approaching!  There will be a short meeting in the Canterbury Room following the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, September 30th.  Please come to see how you can help make this year’s fair a success.   We look forward to seeing you there!!  Brenda Cheeseman (613-226- 8305) and Beulah Rumbolt (613-222-9892).
