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 click here

A big thank you to the sparks and brownies who collected seven bags of garbage around Trinity on Tuesday April 26.

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

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

We want to send her back with a carload of food for their emergency food kits.
