St. John’s thanks community for ongoing financial support
St. John’s United Church in Creemore would like to acknowledge the community and our church members for their financial support throughout the last 15 months. Your kind donations have enabled us to continue to function as a church when services were restricted and the church was closed. Online services have provided us the opportunity to remain faithful and hopeful that we will soon return to normal life and activities.
We have tried to pay it forward in a few ways. Understanding that residents of Creedan Valley nursing home have been greatly impacted by the isolation caused by COVID-19, a donation was made to their residence council. Our wish was that holiday celebrations could be expanded upon with these extra funds to provide special desserts and/or decorations.
We received a card from the Creemore Legion Branch 397, thanking us for our donation, which went towards some of the purchase of meat for their beef dinner held in April.
Thanks goes out to The Echo for helping us in the running of the trivia challenges and quizzes. Look for them to continue in the fall.
When school returns to in-person learning, the students of Nottawasaga and Creemore Public School can enjoy our donation of 20 soccer balls and 25 Frisbees to add to their indoor/outdoor activities.
In addition, we wish to thank the staff of the school for assisting us in our community garden project. They have provided us with water and the use of their raised gardens. Look for the “vegetables of our labours” later this summer and fall.
We also continually support the Clearview Stayner Food Bank which provides such an essential service to families throughout Clearview Township, especially during COVID-19.
By working together and staying apart safely we can continue supporting the community as they have supported us. Thank you.
On behalf of St. John’s United Church members.
