Aberfoyle Public School Students Entertain at the Senior’s Luncheon

Aberfoyle Public School Students Entertain at the Senior’s Luncheon 

Mount Carmel Zion United Church began a seniors reach out program around 20 years ago. The program started as a potluck luncheon. A few years in the volunteers decided to include entertainment for the seniors to enjoy, such as guest speakers, singers and musicians. The event became so popular the church’s capacity wasn’t large enough, so they moved to The Puslinch Community Centre. 

Thank you from Chalmers Community Services Centre

Mount Carmel Zion United Church donated 256 pounds of food in March.
