Folk from SAUC and Highlands United volunteered and served a pizza lunch at Bissell Centre/ICPM after their church service, led by Jim Gurnett today. Over 100 people were served inside and another 100 people waiting in line outside received a bag lunch. Thank you to the Outreach committee for prepping and organizing supplies beforehand. (The lady in the middle of the first collage has served at ICPM for over 30 years, and gave me permission to take her picture).
The Christmas Pageant featuring our children was such a great event.
On December 2nd about 75 ladies gathered for the annual potluck supper and candlelight vesper services. Donations were collected for the food bank and Kinettes Hamper. Karen McLennan shared a slide show of UCW events over the last 30 years, while everyone reminisced over times past.
