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.

Update on Chalmers Move Downtown

After a few weeks of uncertainty, plans are now beginning to come together for our move out of 40 Baker Street. The decision was made this past week that our best option is to relocate to Three Willows/Chalmers West and we are deeply grateful to the church for welcoming us at short notice and with such generosity of spirit.
