Winnifred Stewart: Empties to Winn Project
Please feel free to bring some or all of your empty bottles (juice, milk, cans, and other beverage containers) and drop them in our bag.

Fresh Ideas, Fresh Greens: Members of the community are invited to a special event that features a workshop on responses to climate change by Dr. Randy Haluza-DeLay (environmental sociologist at King's University College), The event will be held August 26 at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church (11223-51 Ave) from 6:45-8:45 pm and will feature appetizers made from community garden produce. All are welcome! Please RSVP to by August 22. Suggested donation of $20, or as you are able (fundraiser for green energy)

Our Diocese is currently engaged in the 'Reach' Campaign, a $5 million fundraising campaign, and each parish is required to participate. 50% of funds raised will go back to the parishes, and each parish is asked to prepare a 'Case Statement' outlining how the money will be spent.
A small working group in our parish has prepared a draft 'Case Statement' outlining two possible scenarios; however, this statement is just a starting point and we hope to flesh it out at a congregational meeting on Thursday August 28th 7 - 9 p.m. We realize summer is not ideal but we are constrained by the diocesan schedule (our campaign is set to run from September to December). If you have not received a copy of the draft case statement by email, please pick one up at the back of the church, and come prepared to contribute your thoughts to the meeting.

You are receiving this email because your name is on the parish list of St. Margaret's Anglican Church. If you wish to be removed from this list, please contact the sender and ask to be unsubscribed. Thank you!
