From the Treasurer
As of 31 March, the deficit has grown to $18,194. Though a deficit is normal at this time of year, this is larger than expected. At the same time, offerings of all kinds (loose, envelopes, PAR, Canada Helps, United Way) have declined more than projected.
Plant And Yard Sale, May 28 8 – 12 noon (on our front lawn) There are colour posters in the Narthex, please take one and post in your local grocery store or business.
VOLUNTEERS - Thanks to all that have signed up. We need more volunteers for all shifts on Saturday, especially before the sale. We need help to unpack, sort, set up before the sale outside, sell and repack. Ideally, we would like to have 6-7 people per day. Contact Trina in the office with your availability. There is also a sign- up sheet in the Narthex.
PLANT DONATIONS - can be dropped off at Rothwell United Church Thursday and Friday 9:30 to 2:00 p.m and Friday 5:00-7:00 p.m. Please label your plants.
Parking Lot A local condo group has rented extra parking spaces from us for the next six weeks while they repave. We are quite confident there will be room for all on weekends. Thank you for your understanding.
We are increasing our enforcement of illegally parked vehicles in our lot. Anyone needing parking should contact the church office.
