Food for Thought
  • This is a seminal saying: Jesus has come that we may have abundant life. The signs of his presence are love, joy, growth, change and activity, which vary at different ages. Not necessarily health-- we cannot control that – but love and growth as the years pass.
  • I wonder, have I more abundant life today than yesterday?

RELAY FOR CANCER

April 7, 2008

Dear fellow parishioners,

I am part of a committee that is organizing, with the aid of the Canadian Cancer Society, 12-hour Relay for Life event on June 13th at McAndrew Park here in Buckingham. Our committee is responsible for the planning of events for the survivors and fighters of this terrible disease. This will include a meal, some presentations and the coordination of the Victory Lap, which will open this event.

I will be taking part in this 12-hour relay and am asking you for your help as follows:

  1. You can sponsor me, for any amount. I will have a banner listing all the people I am walking for.

  2. You can purchase a candle for $5.00 it will be lit and placed along the Victory Lap at 10:00 pm. This will be an encouragement for all the walkers to pay tribute to these people. This candle will have a label with In Memory of or In Honor of followed by the persons name and a little message. You can give me all this information and money and I will ensure that your candle is placed along the Victory Lap.

  3. A donation box has been placed near the stairs for your contribution. It will be there every Sunday until the end of May.

  4. If you know any survivors or fighters of this disease please let me know so we can invite them to this special event. Please provide name and telephone number.

This is our way of remembering and respecting those who have either won, are still fighting, or who have lost the battle from this terrible disease.


I thank you in advance,

Monique Simpson
