  • Unfortunately, Campbell’s is no longer supporting the “Campbell’s Labels for Education” program so please do not save any more labels. We gave the labels to the Bluewater Chordsmen and they raised a great deal of money to support various educational programs, particularly for children with special needs. Thanks for the support over the years!

  • When bringing food donations for Sacred Heart Food Bank, please ensure the “best before date” has not passed. Because of liability issues, SHFB does not distribute such food.

  • Members of the Lambton Shrine Club are collecting empty pop cans. Money earned from this venture is used to help crippled and burned children. Fill a large garbage bag and then call 800-799-4992.

  • At a recent meeting of McDonald Memorial Cemetery Board, it was decided that approximately 20 trees will be planted along the north end and east and west sides of the cemetery. A bench similar to the ones already there will be installed on the cement pad at the north end. The total cost of this project is close to $5000. If able to help finance this, please make a cheque payable to “McDonald Memorial Cemetery” and give it to Bev Bradley. All donors will receive a receipt eligible for income tax purposes.

  • The Lighthouse Family Bookstore continues the journey that the Sarnia Christian Bookstore began over 60 years ago. Located at 1407 London Road, Sarnia, an exciting addition is a cafe complete with Wi-Fi internet access where you may fellowship with friends.

  • ACWAM (Active Christians with a Mission) is looking for help for its missions in Haiti. This Sarnia-based group supports 3 orphanages and 3 Christian schools in Haiti. They are looking for:

    - sponsorship for children ($30.00/month). See the bulletin board for information;
    - financial donations;
    - people willing to go to Haiti for a short period (costs $1600);
    - Metro cash register receipts;
    - items such as barrettes, balloons, small toys, etc. (see bulletin board for complete list).

    Please put these items in the box at the back of the church.

    Haiti is so poor, it is now considered a fourth-world country so much help is needed. A major problem is Voodoo; it is very prominent in Haiti and presents many challenges for Christian workers. No administration fees are taken from sponsorship money or funds designated for Haiti. To make a donation, put it in your envelope and mark it "Haiti". For more information on ACWAM, see the bulletin board or www.acwam.ca
