News from Trinity's Reopening Committee
We sincerely thank the members of our congregation for following the protocols that have been put in place so that we can successfully have Sunday Church Services again. Worshiping together is wonderful! We also thank the many volunteers who have helped with screening, recording contact information, ushering and running the technology equipment. The sense of teamwork is so appreciated!
With cooler and more inclement weather approaching, we will modify our entry procedures. When necessary, we will ask people to enter by Trinity Hall where you will be met by the screeners, then proceed to the narthex. Hopefully, this change eliminates anyone having to wait outside in the cold. Families, who have someone with mobility issues, will continue to be welcomed at the front door.
Stay tuned as the Reopening Committee reviews recent documents from the Government of Ontario and the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.

For further information about the Knitting Group, contact Gail Lewis at 705-738-1279. Next meeting November 30th @ 2 p.m.
A Request from our UCW – Meat Pie Ladies!
Would anyone have a fairly large (5 cubic foot) freezer that they no longer need, perhaps in somebody's basement or garage? The UCW ladies are looking to replace one of our freezer's that recently stopped working, that stores the chicken and beef pies. Please contact Olive Macoomb at 705-738-9984.
Pies will be made available for sale to the congregation after worship service on Sunday, November 28th, 2021.

THE HEALING MINISTRY IS BACK!!!
The healing Ministry is being organized to resume on Wednesday,November 3rd and will be open every Wednesday for 6 weeks. We just have two practitioners at the moment, Beth Halliday and myself, and we will need to take extra time between clients to disinfect our tables, etc. Therefore, we have spots for only 6 clients each week. We will book appointments for you to attend every other Wednesday. That way, we can accommodate more people in a 2-week period.
We are only able to accept registration for those who have been fully vaccinated and we will need to see proof of that at your first appointment. This is for our safety and for that of the clients.
Please call Carol Wells-Gordon at 705-731-0455 to book an appointment. Beth and I are very excited to be able to offer Reiki once again. We look forward to seeing you soon.
