What's Happening November 2 - 8, 2015

Join us Sunday, November 8 at 10:30 am, for After the War is Over presented by Rev. Diane Rollert with Vera Freud. Music will be by Sandra Hunt, piano, and the Yellow Door Choir, Roxanne Martel, director. On this day of remembrance, we honour our veterans with our Remembrance Day wreath and remember all those whose lives have been touched by war, as we continue to dream of peace. We consider the resilience that’s needed to survive after war is over.
