Chairlift Fundraiser BBQ and Silent Auction
Tickets will soon be available for the June 17th chairlift Fundraiser for St. John the Baptist basement hall access. You can help remove this barrier, allowing all community members to fully participate in the spiritual and fellowship activities conducted in the hall. The event includes entertainment, steak, chicken, wine and all the trimmings. Seating is limited, making for good odds to win the major door prize of a weekend in Edmonton and silent auction items. Please contact Stan Bartlett, Syl Lefebvre, Larry Andrews, Mike Shandalla or Mike Daley as soon as possible to reserve your tickets, or donate a silent auction item. There are also sign-up sheets at the back of each church.
