The Park Committee is grateful to receive a donation from the Mississauga's of Scugog Island First Nation. This donation will provide funds to purchase a new freezer for the hall and provide funds to cover some of the costs to run Art Day in the Park. This includes the cost of supplies for the "Imagination Station" kids' craft area. We will provide the Art supplies and the kids can bring their imagination....what will they create!?

Katie O'Hara and Kathy Nix were the greeters. Kathy lit the Christ candle. Congratulations to Chris and Brooke Acton on celebrating their anniversary Aug. 4th, they also visited the little church donation box. The scripture reader was Wendy Hughes in memory of her mother who would have been 108 on Aug. 5th. Music Director Joan Lee thanked Don and Marg Real of Warkworth for providing the words for a new closing blessing which we are learning and is sung to the tune of Edelweiss. Minister Stephanie's message was about not being yourself if you are hungry, which is universal. We all experience at times, wilderness and feel we are forgotten and lost in our lives and not ourselves. God hears our complaints and we are fed as we are one and the Holy Spirit gives us the strength to help others to survive. Jesus is the bread of life.
