Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary to Frank and Eva Molnar. (June 15) Some Seagravers attended an open house for them in Lindsay.

On Saturday Don & Betty Lou Beacock attended their Granddaughter's lovely outdoor wedding at Pontypool (Aleasha Preston and Adam Raymond). They reside in Cobourg

Ken and Eleanor Sturman entertained their family on Sat. to celebrate Father's Day. On Sunday they treated Ross and Jean Short to dinner at Capt. George's.

Happy Birthday to Barb Martyn (June 18) and Happy Anniversary to Bill and Karen Heustis (June 20)

Thanks to our guest pianist, Valerie Hunter and soloist Erika Phillips, both from Greenbank. Erika sang a beautiful rendition of How Great Thou Art. Barb Martyn and Rick McAskill were greeters. Barb Martyn visited the birthday box. Kalen Bussey lit the Christ candle followed by a moment of silent centering time. Minister Stephanie read the children the story of "Granddad's Prayers of the Earth" to honour Father's Day. Nature itself prays, the tall trees with outstretched branches upward, the lakes, rivers with laughter, whispers and
waves. Prayers of the people while watching a sunrise or sunset, and music. Our prayers often have its own answer. Two students passed out gifts of tape measures for all the Dad's. Irene Sutch read the scriptures and Tara Taylor read a story for Mission and Service. Minister Stephanie's service was about the seed of God's love that is within us. It can spark the growth within to something wonderful.
