Farewell for Terry, Leslie and Rosie
Farewell To Terry, Leslie and Rose
Thank you to Sadie and Peter Kramer for helping us get the back door installed. They spent three long days at the church; it was a very big job! A new frame was put in and the brick was levelled to prevent future moisture from collecting and rusting the door and lifting the tiles inside at the door entrance. Thank you to Todd and Karen for picking up the door and delivering it for us. The door was part of an end of summer sale at Rona so we got a very good price. The door is now vented, so the folks in the kitchen can cool off when the kitchen gets too hot. We also thank Sadie for spearheading the two clean up days at St. Peter's, one in June and one in November. Great work everyone.
Homemade soup (sometimes chili), buns, beverages and dessert will be served. There will be a good will offering basket for those who wish to make a donation. Proceeds will be used to help in the community. Everyone is welcome to join us. If you have any questions, please speak to either Judy Martin or Mike Hogg. We thank you for your participation in this outreach project.
Dates for 2018-19: Dec. 2nd; Jan. 6th; Feb. 3rd; Mar. 3rd; Apr. 7th; May 5th.

Cemetery By-Laws (St. Peter’s Cemetery Board)
Two historical documents were dedicated at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Churchill, Ontario by the Reverend Matthew McMillan. The first is a three-ringed binder of census, births, marriages and death information about the Reverend Canon Morgan and his family. He planted nine Anglican churches in the Barrie area, St. Peter’s being one of them. The second is a three-ringed binder of census, births, marriages and death records for all the clergy who have served at St. Peters from 1856 to the present day. The binders are presented in gratitude for all the years of selfless service to the Anglican Church. The two binders were researched and presented to the archives by George Leggett, who worked endless hours compiling the information.
