News for the Week of April 30, 2017

Here are your weekly announcements for your reading pleasure. Please note that on Saturday (April 29th) we will be busy hosting our annual Prime Rib Beef Dinner which will include a Silent Auction. This promises to be a great evening of good food, fellowship and fun! The auction will continue until Coffee Hour on Sunday morning so everyone will have an opportunity to bid on their favourite items.

I should also mention that the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women will take place on SUNDAY morning (8 to 11 a.m.) and may impact your usual route to church. Main Street will be closed north of Hwy. 7 to Eckardt (one street south of the church) and there will be intermittent stoppage on Hwy. 7 as well as at the intersection of Carlton & Main. We have been assured of full access to our property, so you may want to allow yourself a little extra time for stoppages or to take a longer route. The northern entrance to the back street, just east of Main Street behind the stores, will also be closed.

And here is a reminder for those on duty for Sunday. We thank all of you for your service to your church:

Worship Host: Maureen Dudley
Greeters: Elizabeth Gaffney and Peter Seidler
