July 23, 2017
Pam will be away July 18 until August 1. Returning to the office August 2.
Sunday, July 23 Following the 10:30 a.m. Service. The item to be discussed:
The Diocese has agreed to provide a grant for us to hire a part-time Children and Youth Ministry Person. The proposed grant is based on 4-year plan, such that the Diocese will cover Yr 1=100%; Yr 2=75% ; Yr 3=50%; Yr 4=25%. The position would cost about $20,000 per year. At our annual vestry earlier this year, the parish voted to support 2 years of this four-year plan. The Diocese is asking for at least a 3-year commitment, from us, in order to provide the grant.
Supporting information has been sent out. Please check your email and take some time to look over the materials.
It will be a short meeting as this is the only item on the agenda. Please plan to attend!

Trivia Night Report
We are sorry for the delayed submission of this report. The good news is that all who attended the event had a great time! This year a pot luck supper was held prior to the Trivia event and was attended by approximately 30 people. (the food and hospitality was fabulous!) Just prior to the refreshment break, midway through the trivia rounds, Liz and Floyd were honoured as it was their 50th Wedding Anniversary! The bad news is that, due to the poor support of the evening by members of the congregation, we raised only $145.66. This total is well below the budgeted amount set at Vestry for the event to generate. (total raised last year was approximately $800).
We’d like to thank Rebecca for managing ticket sales/advertising; Patricia as our Smart Serve staff; Florence for her generous contribution of snacks; Judith and Floyd for assisting with set-up; Adele and Jane, our score-keepers for the evening; Jeanette, Elsie, Erin, Kelly, Quinn, Lou, John, Robert and Floyd for clean-up and setting the Church up for Sunday services! Congrats to our repeat winners, who went by the name Target On Our Back, and to New Hope who came a close second!
Nancy and Ray
We need help maintaining our Community Garden. In the early part of the summer (June/July) this consists mostly of weeding and watering. As of August we start to switch over to harvesting and delivering the produce to Community Care. Please have a look at your calendar and see what weeks you are available to help. Thanks!
