The United Church of Canada has elected the Rev. Dr. Carmen Lansdowne, Kwisa’lakw, 47, as its 44th Moderator. She will be the church’s spiritual leader for the next three years.
For many years our biggest fundraiser was known as Rowntree’s Spring Fling, or a variations of this name. With the pandemic, large gatherings indoors were not safe. But this year, hopefully, things might be ok. We’ve set Sept 10 as the return of our big sale – called our Summer’s End Sale
Books, Bargains, Baking, Deli Table, etc. Donations gratefully accepted.
This same date the Carling Neighbourhood Association’s is organizing a neighbourhood Yard Sale which means many houses in our area will be offering sales too. Should be a good day all around.
For July, there are no Sunday services at Rowntree, we’ll be meeting at Dundas St United ( 482 Dundas St. ) at 10 am. Services resume at Rowntree Aug 7 at 10 am. Masks are distancing are required. Zoom will be also be offered – details on login to be emailed out.
