Still needed are 500 ml Mason Jars…
for the upcoming chili sauce making which is scheduled for Thursday, August 31st and Tuesday, September 5th. Thanks to everyone who have donated jars so far. I have 100 jars and still require another 80 jars. Please put them in the Church kitchen and I will periodically pick them up. Many thanks. Olive Macoomb
After much discussion and prayer, Beth Halliday and I are closing the Healing Ministry. We have been so blessed by the support and love of our congregation, allowing us to use the sanctuary each Wednesday to offer this natural healing system called Reiki. We have emptied the cupboards that have been designated for storage of our tables, linen, etc. We plan to sell our equipment and donate the money to Trinity in thanks for all the support over the years.

Ukulele Group at Trinity
I would like to start a ukulele group at Trinity. It is an easy instrument to learn and I guarantee that after one lesson you will be able to play a couple of songs, and we will build from there. The ukulele is an
instrument that is recommended for seniors wanting to learn an instrument, even without being able read music! They are relatively cheap to buy…. from $99. Of course, you can always pay more! You
would also want a tuner which costs about $20. For more information, call Sue Pepper @ 705-738-9633 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
