Appreciation Tea Report
Our Appreciation Tea for 2012, held on August 26, was rather unusual in that we were managing this event for the first time without Arnold Stobbe, our Director, who had initiated and led these events for the previous 10 years. Happily, Arnold was recovering at home, and we rejoiced at that news.
Joe Homontowski had invited Pastor Steve Fish, from Faith Baptist Church that had recently had a fire, to share his testimony.
Joe handed out the new 2013 calendar, which he had completed, and printed as the thank you gifts to the list of people who had especially helped by raising money for the Walkathon fundraiser for Impact Canada.
The volunteers so recognized, were; Wayne Berg, Arnold Stobbe, Priscilla McCormick, Anna Doell, Ivy Kjarsgaard, Harold and Katie Barth, Archie and Carolyn Loewen, Abe and Helen Doerksen, Ruth Friesen, Peter Doerksen, Frank and Linda Porter, Barbara Jenkins, Mike Jenkins, Aleisha, Peter and Susan Buhler, Nancy Henderson, Jane Petersen, Corrine Tronsguard, Allen Martens, Joe and Penny Homontowski, Judy Giesbrecht, Anne Willems, Dan Huston, Hugh and Judy Pineault and their children Pascal and Olivia.
We were blessed to have Donald David and his wife Lydia present with us. Donald had written our newest tract, "The Blood of Jesus Christ" which we had just printed. He was invited to speak some words to our group about the tract.
After the presentations, of course, everyone was invited to enjoy coffee, or tea with the sweets and snacking foods that had been prepared. We are grateful to the volunteers who cheerfully helped with the food, and for the friends who came to join us in this small celebration of our faithful fundraisers.
