It is with great sadness that we bring you this update. After one year of immense courage and determination, struggle and discomfort, Rev. Dr. Hans Kouwenberg passed away on June 10th to be with his Eternal Father. With knowledge of an endpoint to his earthy life, we as family have shared both tears and occasional smiles with him in his final days. He was in the presence of his family, with Colleen at his side.

In the upcoming weeks, there will be a small family gathering as a memorial to our dear husband, father, Opa, and brother. A larger memorial service will be held, in time, as current limitations lift from larger gatherings. We will provide further details regarding a memorial service. Colleen is appreciating some time with family in the next few days. We appreciate your respect of this time. Thank you for your kindness during this difficult journey.

FACEMASKS AVAILABLE: If anyone would still like to pick up their FREE home-made facemask, and any additional ones for the price of $5.00 each, Heather Davis still has some left. They can be picked up at the church office on Wednesday and Friday mornings between 9AM and Noon. Thank you.

If you are graduating, or would like to recognize someone who is, please send a photo of the graduate and a short write up about them to Janet at no later than June 17th.  Thank you.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS: Hank Peters has moved to Summerland to be with his family. If you would like to correspond with him, his new address is c/o Ken Peters, P.O. Box 171, Summerland, BC V0H 1Z0. Hank will be missed.
