Volunteers needed for the Grand-Friends Program

Grand-friends is a program of partnership. This program introduces and pairs young newcomer moms with a Canadian senior in order to provide a mom/grandma pairing to a newcomer mom and her children. This will provide an opportunity to practice English, make friends and encourage cultural awareness. We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to help with this program. The group will meet Friday mornings from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at Trinity United church from May 6 to June 10. For questions or to register please phone Tenille at 204-774-7311. For more information please see attachment. 

Spring Clean up is on May 14 at 9:00 a.m. – bring your rakes and buckets as we clean the church inside and out. (Rain date for cleaning outside May 28)

One Can, Two Can, Who Can? You Can!

Let’s spring into action this May by supporting West Broadway Community Ministry.  Lynda Trono, Minister for WBCM, will be giving the message at our May 29 church service. We want to send her back with a carload of food for their emergency food kits. WBCM supports both families and single persons with food in emergency situations.  For this particular food blitz, we are asking for donations of canned vegetables, soups, meat, fish, and cereal.  Remember these items are being take home, so bulk items are not required.  The Outreach Committee collects items regularly (and will continue to do so)  but for the month of May we want to fill their emergency cupboards! Please drop off any donations in the grocery cart in the narthex. Thanks for your continued support this spring. (see picture in attachments)

Bomber fund raiser starts with a pre season game on May 27. We have enough volunteers for the May 27 game! Thank you to all who signed up. Please check your emails for all the game dates and if you haven’t already done so, please let Irma and Marilyn know which games you are able to work or get in touch with them if you have any questions.
