A church in the park was planned for last Sunday but as the weather was iffy, members from the three churches gathered at the United Church. The theme was welcoming the stranger. The collection was for the Ukraine Fund. 

Sixteen youngsters attended the kid's day at the museum. They were to guess boxed artifacts from the museum. After a virtual scavenger hunt, lunch was a variety of muffins and juice.
