HIGHLITES FROM PARISH COUNCIL MEETING OF Dec. 13, 2016
(complete minutes will be posted in the Parish Hall outside the office)
Kitchen Renovations continue. Additional education sessions for Kitchen Supervisors will be scheduled for January. Four people have agreed to co- manage the kitchen temporarily. These people will provide valuable feedback as to the amount of time and duties required of this position(s). Funds for some of the renovation have been provided by the Parrot Foundation and Bridge St. Foundation. These were provided in consideration of the goal to address local community food needs through outreach.
Bicentennial Celebrations - Linda Matchim, Gail Rollins and Anne Clark will be organizing a cookbook of family favorite recipes in honour of St. Thomas' Bicentennial.
Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG) - The response to the PAG letter continued to grow with more than 60 families either joined or having increased their giving through PAG.
Online Donations will soon be possible through Canada Helps. Phil Allison will take the lead on this initiative. Information can be found on their website. More details to follow.
Brunches - Parishioners have reported they have enjoyed the two brunches held after the 10:30 service this fall. These have provided additional funds but more importantly an opportunity for fellowship.
