One of the great benefits of our recent remodel is that we now are able use the coatroom for people to view and hear Sunday services. There is a volume control switch (just left of the doorway) for the one-way speaker for this purpose.
This means that on Sundays, the coatroom could be used by parents with fussy children or nursing mothers (we now have two chairs and a crib available for those needs). Or, that space could be used by people who require translation services or by those who simply prefer to sit on their own. Know too, that that room is also used by the ushers, musicians and other volunteers who are working during the service. We are happy to have this new capability which, thankfully, is available for all.
Thanks to all who supported our Garden Team with the purchase of plants. We were able to raise $263. We purchased a soaker hose and some compost with some of these funds.
The money collected at the Plant Sale will also be the start of a fund to be used each year for the maintenance of the gardens including annual and new perennial plants, garden equipment and other garden needs that surface.
Please note the hard work of Dilaine Noel and Pat Stace-Naughton (Denise’s husband & ex-officio member of the Garden Team) in putting down new dirt, fertilizer and wood chips on many of the beds last week-end with Dilaine also contributing free fertilizer. WOW, what a difference! Also note the clean up of the back of the tool shed and tree by the ramp to the Medicine Wheel. Thanks to Pat. With much love & appreciation to our whole Garden Team from Denise Stace-Naughton.
