The Seagrave bridge is currently closed as the engineers have deemed it unsafe. The plan is to do the repairs and to re-open it when it is safe and when a grant is received the major renovations will begin sometime in 2018.

Stephanie Richmond, a Student of Ministry from the Janetville/Yelverton area, was our guest, assisting Rev. Richard in celebration of World Wide Communion Day. Stephanie’s children’s story was about a hummingbird. There was a fire and the hummingbird continually went back and forth from the pond to the fire carrying water in his tiny beak. He was asked why? The answer was “I am doing the best I can”. Yes, one person can make a difference. We wish Stephanie success in her new vocation.
