It’s time to dig out your skates! On February 19th, the Sunday School and Youth Group will be having a Skating Party. Please meet at 10:15 at Mount Royal United Church in Lynn Hall. Rentals are not provided on site so all participants will have to bring their own skates. If you do not have skates, please email email@example.com in advance with your skate size and we will try to find extra pairs (we cannot promise that we will be successful but are willing to try). Hot chocolate will be provided afterwards by Elizabeth Boivin. If people would like to bring extra treats as well, please let us know at the above email and remember to make sure things are nut free. Finally, we need volunteers to accompany kids and help lace up skates. Please let either Sarah Wicks-Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to be a volunteer. And make sure to wear lots of layers and bring mittens, scarves, and hats!
You are invited to join us at Mount Royal United Church at 5:30pm on Tuesday, February 21st for a Pancake Supper. This will be a time of fellowship and feasting before the season of Lent. Tickets are $10 a person or $35 per family (for a family of 4 or 5 individuals). They can be bought in advance through e-transfer or in person on Sundays at MRUC. To make sure there is enough food for everyone, we need RSVPs by February 15th. Please send your RSVPs to email@example.com
