Did you know …
that both nursing homes (Case Manor & Pinecrest) are much more accessible these days! You no longer need to set-up appointments, but you may still need to wear a mask while inside. I’m sure the residence would enjoy a visit!
How does one even begin to say Thank You to such a beautiful, caring Church Family?? Every Prayer....every phone call.... every card of encouraging words.... every bowl of soup ... every tea biscuit... every muffin... every cookie showed us that we were loved and cared for . When we thought there was no end in sight...YOU....were the inspiration that kept us moving forward We are sooo very blessed to live in Beautiful Bobcaygeon and to have such a wonderful Community of Faith at Trinity United Church. Words can never express our gratitude!! Love & Blessings, Morris & Jo Wesley
