VBS (Vacation Bible School) was a huge success the week of August 13 – 17! Thank you to everyone who donated, made snacks, volunteered their time— it’s because of you that we can continue to do VBS each year! Many thanks to Elizabeth Annand and Barb Jones for their leadership again this year.

Trinity Does Carrot Fest – Thanks to the help of a few volunteers Trinity returned to Carrot Fest this year with a booth on Friday night. We were armed with flyers about some of our various groups and activities, an introduction brochure about Trinity, and thanks to the Krafty Knitters almost 100 orange prayer squares and a number of carrot dish clothes. Despite the rain that kept many away from Carrot Fest on Friday night we did meet, talk with and hand out prayer squares to some local residents. We also had a draw for two steak dinner tickets, but as of the writing of this article, they remain unclaimed.

Thank you to the Krafty Knitters for their contributions, Bonnie Connelly who copied and folded all of our handouts, Stewart Bond who setup and assisted at the booth and sponsored the steak dinner tickets, and Lynn Woods who assisted at the booth. Plans are already underway for next year. Hopefully by starting earlier, we can have a booth on Saturday instead when there are far more opportunities to connect with our community. Volunteers of all ages will be needed and wanted, representing the variety of people that are Trinity. Look for more information in the spring and think about helping out, even for one hour, it really was fun despite the rain.

Thank-you to everyone who supported our Hymn Sing on Wednesday evening, August 22. $1819.90 was raised, all going towards the cost of replacing the furnaces and A/C. Although most of those attending were Trinity parishioners, it was a pleasure to welcome others from the community. Our Hymn Sing is always open to everyone. Stewart Bond added a special touch by joining in several of the hymns on the drums. Afterwards we indulged in ice cream sundaes, served up by ‘super scoopers’ Meg and Sheryl! Thank-you to Bradford’s “3 Scoops Ice Cream Store” for donating the ice cream! Please acknowledge our appreciation when you visit the store.
