The Presbyterian Women are organizing a Food Bazaar / Christmas Fayre. All things sold will be food or items pertaining to food. There will be a bake table, deli, coffee and muffin corner, food gifts, and a table of donated baking utensils and cookbooks. We will be needing many helpers to work the tables and provide security, set-up and clean- up. Most of all we would love your baking, cooking, preserves, and baking utensils you could provide…also decorating and some signs. For other information please ask any of the women. Let’s make a wonderful bazaar with help from the whole church family. Thanks to all, Kaye Tate 613-521-5625
2020 Annual Report (submitted by Kaye Tate)
The Presbyterian Women found 2020 challenging, but tried to keep our basic activities going. During the year, we kept the kitchen supplied, continued sending bulletins to shut-ins, and sending appropriate greeting cards to members and affiliates.
For the annual meeting in February, we supplied desserts.
We tried to keep our mission donations normal so we could support our two projects. ( see treasurers report ).
In October we prepared for the bazaar with two pie bakes.
Rob Brandon explained and, with Laura, conducted our first on-line sale to replace our usual bazaar. It was an interesting learning experience. We feel it was successful, and we thank the Brandons for all the work they did.
At the end of the year, we arranged for gift items for our shut-ins. These included Christmas masks made by Mai-yu Chan who lives at Redwoods. The proceeds from them went to the Centretown Emergency Food Centre.
It was a joy to have our new minister, the Rev. Paul Wu, and Daisy at our December meeting. May 2021 bring new hope, new ideas, and a renewed dedication, with God’s help.
