Jim and I were at the cottage last weekend.  It was awesome.  We saw a moose, a porcupine, a deer, a barred owl, many songbirds, and our first loon of the season.  It is incredible how quickly nature responds to the changing of the seasons and readies itself for regeneration and rebirth.

We are experiencing a bit of a rebirth ourselves this year.  For the third straight month, we are in the black financially.  Lest we pat ourselves on the back too soon, much of our recent financial gain has been due to our increased fundraising activities this year.  Our senior’s lunches have done very well, as did our chicken dinner and the Police Choir concert.  While givings have remained fairly stable and are only slightly below budget, we are coming up to the warmer months when fewer of us are around.  I would urge you to start thinking about the summer and making plans to join our pre-authorized remittance program, or to designate givings ahead.  While we may enjoy a lovely summer vacation, unfortunately our bills do notJ 

Kudos to the concert committee for all of their hard work.  It was a wonderful afternoon of music.  The Waterloo Region Police Choir was so impressed with our sanctuary that they would like to hold further concerts there, and discussion around this is ongoing.  They waived any fees so that all of the funds could go to our fundraiser.  We are sincerely grateful to them for their support, and their generosity.

UCM has a few seats left for their annual bus trip on Sunday May 15.  For $65, you will tour Fielding Winery, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and then enjoy a scrumptious dinner at the Syndicate Restaurant in Grimsby.  These tours have been very successful in the past few years, and we have always had lots of fun.  Please speak to Larry Martin if you are interested in attending.

Our Property Committee has been busy in the choir room and continues to renovate that space.  There are some issues with the floor that must be resolved before proceeding further with the work on the stage and in the hallway.  They are also working on removing much of the ‘stuff’ that seems to appear and multiply in some of our rooms and hallways.  We have had significant interest from a number of groups in renting space, so we want to ensure that the place looks clean and organized, not like a junk shop. 

Our outreach for the month of May will be Lisaard House.   Waterloo Region’s first residential cancer hospice, Lisaard House, provides care free of charge for individuals facing a limited life expectancy.  Lisaard House is committed to helping people dying of cancer to live the life remaining to them as fully as possible and easing the challenges facing their loved ones.  Lisaard House is in need of:

  • Coffee – regular or fine grind
  • Paper towels
  • Creamed soups
  • Juice boxes
  • Liquid soap and refill size
  • Apple sauce
  • Pudding cups, fruit or Jello cups
  • Hot chocolate
  • Bounce – unscented only please
  • Apple or cranberry juice

Please help as you are able.  Lisaard House has been a wonderful asset to our community.

I want to close by recognising each of you for your optimism, your dedication, and for your support and contributions to the life and work of our church.  It is amazing to sit and listen to the buzz of conversation each Sunday morning both before and after the service, and to bear witness to the hospitality that you show to each other and to our guests.  Thank you.
