The Chili Luncheon last Sunday was an Amazing Success👏🏻!  A Great Time of Fellowship & Yummy Food was enjoyed by 68 people.  The Smiles, Laughter & Positive Comments coming from Trinity Hall were very Heartwarming💖! A Huge Thank You to the many people who helped out with Set-up, Food Preparation & Clean-up.  The support and assistance, so willingly given from our congregation, is very much appreciated.  A Big Thank You for your Generous Donations which enables us to add over $500.00 to our Washroom Accessibility Fund.  Also, Chili & Desserts were delivered to folks who were unable to attend the luncheon.  They were very touched by our thoughtfulness and really appreciated the food. Stay Tuned for More Fun Events!
