COLLEEN’S CHRISTMAS CRAFT SALE: Due to the circumstances restricting groups meeting together at the present time, Colleen will be having her craft sale in a bit different format this year. Her home (31490 Southern Dr) will be open Monday Nov. 16 – Sat Nov. 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  If you wish to come and peruse what is for sale in her dining room area during one of these times, please call Colleen at (604) 308-3083 to make an appointment.  You may certainly come with a friend, but this will prevent folk congregating at the same time. There will be no food or drinks. Please wear a mask and sanitize as you come in the front door. Items for sale include children’s pillowcases, purses, infinity scarves, potholders, Christmas table runners, children’s toques, aprons, small zippered cosmetic bags, stuffed red flannel teddy bears, and more.

John Fleming: It is with great sadness that we report the death of John Fleming on Sunday, November 1st. Please pray for Miriam and family as they mourn his passing.
