A HUGE thank you and appreciation to all the Anglican churches for your wonderful support and assistance at our 2nd Annual FREE Community BBQ. The BBQ was held on Saturday, June 22, at Shelter House. Once again, over 500 people were fed hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon, lemonade, popcorn, cotton candy, and ice cream cones. The BBQ made front page news on Sunday, July 23, and it was great to see positive news about Christians reaching out with the hands of Christ to help others. What thrilled me was to have us all come together as Anglicans, working for a common purpose. God bless you all!
With blessings and gratitude,
Archdeacon Deborah on behalf of the Deanery BBQ Committee (Erin Ezack, Levina Collins, Irene Wyrozub, Glennis Forsberg, and Bonnie Shipston)
