St. John the Divine Anglican Church to host ‘thank you’ Coffee and Cake hour

The event is in thanks of those who donated to the church following October 2018 robbery

St. John the Divine Anglican Church is hosting a Coffee and Cake hour to thank the community on Sunday, Feb. 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Anglican Community Hall.

The invitation is extended to community friends and to those who contributed to the recovery, repair and replacement of items after the October 2018 break-in at our Community Hall, located at 465 Kinchant St.

A community member posted to Facebook about our great loss and the impact it was going to have and challenged the community to help.

And they rose to the challenge.

People began dropping off donations to Sandra Lewis’s office at AC&D Insurance. on Reid Street.

Cheques started arriving in the mail.

The outpouring of community spirit and support confirmed the value of our work within the community.

We are also thankful for service clubs such as Quesnel Rotary Club and Community Futures North Cariboo, who also provided financial aid so our building security could be updated.

Our hall is not only available to rent, but also provides a venue throughout the year for a weekly Soup Kitchen as well as to the Free Christmas Eve Dinner.

The break-in created a serious financial concern for us and for the continued operation of the hall.

We were overwhelmed by the community’s aid and feel encouraged to continue to serve.

St John’s the Divine Anglican Church is hosting this Cake and Coffee hour to show our gratitude to the community we live in, support and serve.

We hope you will join us.
