Great News! An outdoor food bank is now open at the Seagrave United Church, between the two east entrances to the church, for the community of Seagrave. Food will be placed out each morning and taken in each evening. The table will not be monitored during the day. They will provide hand sanitizer for your use. We ask that you please keep a physical distance. We will donate any excess food to Operation Scugog. Take what you need. Give what you can. Happy Birthday wishes to Brett Puckrin on the 17th, Irene Sutch on the 25th. Happy Birthday wishes also, to Lorna Durward and her daughter Collie, May 15th and to Joan Durward, mom and grandmother on May 16th. Congratulations to Samantha Honey and Gabe Pellizer on the birth of their son, Theodore Ralph Silla Honey-Pellizer, 8 lbs. 2 ozs. Proud grandparents are Nicole and Ken Honey and great grandmother Lynda Honey. Other Canadian celebrations are; May 21st, World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, May 22-25, Aboriginal Awareness Week, May 23rd, World Turtle Day. Turtles can live between 30 and 40 years. They are nature’s oldest and slowest reptilian creatures. May 25th, Victoria Day. The celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday, which has been celebrated in Canada since at least 1845, and was celebrated last weekend. This is the sixth week after Easter. The scripture reading was Acts 17:28. “For in Him we live and move and have our being.” As some of poets have said, “We are His offspring”.

There are so many to thank: The frontline and essential workers, Minister Stephanie continuing to keep everyone connected, those participating in the Sunday services, those who organize the virtual services, those organizing and maintaining the outside food banks at Seagrave and Greenbank Churches, and the phone committee. The Greenbank Lions Club thanks those who purchased lawn and garden fertilizer. The list continues to grow, showing kindness and caring. When purchasing flowers at Otter’s Greenhouses, a donation of non-perishable food would be appreciated for Operation Scugog Foodbank fundraiser. Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns.
