9. From the Mission to Seafarers:

· Please drop in for a visit at the Mission to Seafarers Centre during our Open House 1:30 – 4 pm Sunday, October 21. The Centre is located at Keefer Terminal, 100 Main St., just follow the Harbour Expressway until you get to Keefer Terminal. We have been ministering to seafarers in the Port of Thunder Bay since 1962 and we are celebrating our 50th anniversary.

· After a slow summer, the port is picking up with the fall harvest coming into the port. The Mission to Seafarers would appreciate donations of warm, small to large size men’s clothing. Many of the sailors on ocean-going vessels come from warmer countries and find our fall given to the Mission to Seafarer Rep at each Anglican parish.

· If anyone is interested in volunteering, we are busy enough now to need help: people are needed to staff the Seafarers’ Centre and drive the van.

· The Mission to Seafarers in Thunder Bay is looking for donations for Christmas Gift Bags to be given to seafarers in December. Donations need to be at the Seafarers’ Centre by November 19. Suggested donations include mittens, gloves, writing paper, and wrapped candy.

· For further information go to www.missiontoseafarers.ca/thunderbay or call 344-8241.
