I just received an email from Sheila with the tally from the Service Auction held yesterday, and I am absolutely blown away by the amazing response! Since we have so much to auction off still, there will be a Part 2.

In the meanwhile, I would like to give everyone who contributed and placed bids on auction items a big THANK YOU. We're not a big bunch, but this is not the first time I've seen members and friends rally in such a profound way to benefit our Congregation (ex: the Northern Lights campaign last year). I am very moved and proud to be part of such an amazing group!

April will be a busy month yet again. Aside from the stewardship campaign, new Board Members will be voted in as well. Also, and most exciting maybe, a choir from Toronto will be visiting us at the end of the month. LUUC will host a joint music workshop and concert on Saturday, April 29 with the visiting Toronto choir and the UCM. This is a rare event not to be missed!

Meanwhile, enjoy the warmer, longer days and melting snow.
