We were fortunate to spend last week at Point Pelee for the annual Festival of Birds, which celebrates the spring migration of tens of thousands of birds returning to their nesting habitats in Ontario.  In the four days that we were at Point Pelee National Park, we saw 117 different species, with the highlight being a nest with two baby Great Horned Owls.  It was incredible to go each day and see how much they had grown from the day before.  Nature is truly amazing. 

We will be celebrating Pentecost on Sunday with a joint service with First and St. John’s-on-the-Hill at Wesley.  Please plan to attend if you are able.  Afterwards, at 1:15 p.m., the bus will be leaving for the Niagara trip.  This is always a fun way to spend a day and to support the work of our United Church Men’s group.  We will be visiting Fielding Estates Winery, strolling the downtown of Niagara-on-the-Lake and enjoying a delicious meal at The Syndicate Restaurant in Grimsby.  All for only $65.  Please contact Larry Martin (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you would like to go.

Next Thursday (May 19) at noon will be our seniors luncheon.  These monthly events have been extremely successful and have provided a delicious lunch and entertainment for our own seniors and many from the surrounding community.  Cost is $10 per person.

And don’t forget our outreach for the month of May, 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.  Jim and I dropped off your donations to the Cambridge and District Humane Society the other day, and they were extremely grateful for everything that you donated in support of their work.

We are starting to plan for the fall.  The Executive Committee will be meeting at the end of the month, and we want your ideas for what you would like to see happen at Wesley.  Please think about what brings you to Wesley, and what keeps you there, and what might appeal to others.  You have perhaps shared some of your ideas with the Hospitality Committee in their recent survey, but if you haven’t, or you have thought of something since then, please share them with me by return email or speak to me at church, and I will take them to our meeting on May 29. 

As we strive to be relevant to each other and to our community, it is important for each of us to share our thoughts and our dreams for our future.  I hope to hear from you.

Peace,

Anne Tinker
