Betty Lou Beacock and Darlene Hallett attended the “Closing Celebration” of the Bay of Quinte Conference held at Emmanuel Church on George Street in Peterborough on Saturday. It was a wonderful service with a lot of “Looking Back” over the years and “Giving Thanks” for those years and the people who participated as well as the many leaders. As we move to this new way of doing things we are reminded that “God is With Us, We Are Not Alone”!

Several people from Seagrave attended Greenbank United Church on Sunday to help them celebrate their 122nd Anniversary. It was a lovely service led by Rev. Les Hills from Sunderland United Church and was followed by a delicious lunch, complete with lots of chat and fellowship.

Sunday afternoon, friends gathered at the home if Jack and Ona Short to surprise them for a 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration. Ted and Irene Lamb took them out for brunch, while Catherine and Lloyd and their families decorated the house and prepared snacks and a delicious dinner.
