NOTICE OF SPECIAL VESTRY:  A special vestry is being called for Sunday June 5th, immediately following the service and the motion is as follows:

 Moved by Paul Merriam, seconded by Evan Baker:

Vestry authorizes the Wardens to solicit a loan not exceeding $85,000.00 from the Rectory Trust Fund at 0% interest for a period of up to ten years. The Wardens shall use the loan to facilitate the purchase and installation of a solar electric generating system on the south roof of the sanctuary to generate electricity for sale to the Ontario Power Authority.

FROSTY FAIR PLANNING:  Yes folks, it’s that time again – just as the tulips are starting to bloom!  But we need to settle who might do what – and when.  A planning meeting will be held immediately following the Special Vestry on Sunday, June 5th, in the Canterbury Room – please pick up a coffee and join us. 

PARISH PICNIC, Sunday June 12th, at 10:00 a.m.  Our annual picnic of worship, fun and food will be at Brewer Park.  Please bring picnic food to share, drinks, lawn chairs, smiles and a friend.  If weather is iffy, call the church for confirmation of location.

COME OUT AND SUPPORT AFRICAN MOTHERS AND CHILDREN AFFECTED BY HIV/AIDS!  Trinity is hosting the Watoto Children’s Choir from Uganda, starting with a free concert at Trinity on June 19 at 7 p.m. Good will offering. Come one, come all, and make the Watoto children feel welcome! This is a wonderful choir, with 21 kids ranging from 7-14.  Nine Trinity families are hosting the children and their chaperones for two nights. This is the way that Watoto, the organization Laura Eggertson volunteered for last summer, helps raise funds to support the 2000 orphaned children they raise and another 2000 HIV-positive women they support. African crafts for sale afterwards. Donations appreciated to support two hotel or motel rooms for 2 nights for the bus driver and choir leader – please contact Laura (613) 523-9336 if you can help, or can help with a dinner for the choir before the concert.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.


If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
