Big thanks to all who volunteered at the food bank in January. Usage over the past few months has increased and I think everyone who did work was kept pretty busy with the filling of hampers. A reminder that the general meeting is on the 21st of this month at 3:30 p.m. and the annual general meeting will be held directly after the annual meeting. Anyone can attend the meetings; however if you wish to vote on a motion, you will have to have purchased a membership. These cost $5.00 and can be purchased any Tuesday during food bank hours or at the meeting on the 21st.

If our congregation has an opportunity to hear Dr. Radner, Rev. Alan and I would both encourage them to go. The address is 150 Ambrose Circle S.W. It is west off 69 St SW at the Westside Recreation Complex (between 17th and 26th Avenues).
