WOMEN OF WOODCLIFF (WOW)
It’s the last get-together of the year: Monday, June 11th at 7:15 p.m. in the choir room. A representative from the YWCA Sherriff King Home will be there to both share stories from the facility and to receive all the Worry Buddies and other projects so lovingly created throughout the year. Traditionally, we bless the buddies and the afghans before they leave to be given to the women and children at the YW facility. All women are welcome.
The Property Committee would like to thank everyone who helped make last weekend's Spring Clean-Up such a success! To Sheri, who orchestrated getting the Sunday School rooms spruced up; to Charlotte for helping us get the word out; to Ray for allowing us to use his tools; and to our newest staff member Nicole, who worked tirelessly with anything and everything that needed to be done. We thank our gardeners - Allan, Kevin, Brian (who also doubled as painters, cleaners, and general handy men), Sylvia, and Ken, Deanna, Noreen, Barb. We thank our cleaners - Mary Jane, Ron, Betty, Diane, Evelyn, Helen, and Jeannie. We thank our painters - Susan, Nicola, Myrl, Judy. All these people pitched in willingly to get so much accomplished. We invite you to walk the newly-mulched meditation path or enjoy the front gardens. Come see our brightly coloured Sunday School rooms - the colours are taken from our new Woodcliff logo. Several minor repairs were done. Although we still have lots more projects to tackle, we are thrilled with the success of our party. Thank you!
Sunday June 24 following worship
Please join us in celebrating the wind up of this year’s children and youth programming and in bidding farewell to Rev. Debbie and our transition team of ministers with a BBQ! Food, treats, and games for all ages to enjoy will be provided. All are welcome!
Howdy to Eric and Michelle!! Help us welcome Eric and Michelle to Woodcliff United Church and Calgary on Sunday July 15th with a Pancake Breakfast and Wedding Shower. If you would like to contribute towards a wedding gift for the newlyweds, there will be a box at the back of the church that you may drop off a cash donation in. Council will find out what they need and purchase a gift or gift cards from all of us for them. Come in your best western duds.
Got some time this summer to contribute to Habitat’s goal of providing affordable housing to needy Calgarians? Builds are currently underway in Bowness and Pineridge; check out volunteer opportunities: habitatsouthernab.ca. Stay tuned: Woodcliff is exploring week day and week end build days for the fall.
