Wreath Making Workshop – December 3

It’s nonsense when people say they aren’t at all artistic. Come out and make a lovely 18 inch Christmas wreath for your front door (or back) on Sunday December 3 at the Field House – there are 2 workshops – one at 1 pm & the second at 3:30. All you need is a pair of garden gloves and hand garden pruners and a desire to create a wonderful wreath with 4 kinds of fresh evergreens. The cost is $28.00 and that includes the wreath base, all the boughs, and berries, twine and wire. You can bring ribbon, pine cones, small feathered birds or whatever else you’d like to embellish with.

Halloween Fun Run Wrap-up

A message from Peter Laughton (with minor edits for readability):

Thank-you to all the parents, volunteers, and runners who came out to run and raise money for the Hera Mission this morning. Parents donated their time acting as marshalls on the course, distributed candy medals, and gave out snacks to the runners aged 2-12 years. Through their efforts we raised $950 for important projects in Asembo Bay Kenya. Thanks as well to Carol Arnason and the Champlain Park Community Association for sponsorship and opening up the field house. Thanks to Bushtukah for the tent and prizes and thanks to Jordan from Shopper’s Drug Mart for juice and snacks. Lastly, thanks to the teachers and students of Elmdale school who helped promote the event and came out in record numbers.

Thanks!
Pete
