Halloween Community Engagement
Please bring your candy donations this Sunday
Halloween Oct 31st @sundown
Once a year our neighbours spill out into the street, opening their doors to one another on Halloween. As people who take loving our neighbours seriously, Halloween provides a wonderful opportunity to develop relationships with those who live around us. Here are some opportunities for individual and communal engagement:
@Spring Garden and Kenneth: Spring Gardeners will be handing out candy and chocolate to the neighbours. If you live in a condo or non-trick-or-treating neighbourhood please come and join us
Donate nut-free Candy to be handed out @Spring Garden. Donations can be given to Greg Kay, Gene Tempelmeyer or Jesse James
Be present in your neighbourhood and get to know your neighbours

Highlights of the Cd are “May the God of Hope” featuring our own little “wee” kids choir, and “Psalm 30” written and performed by Sharon Kim.
