INVITATION! COME THIS SUNDAY TO CELEBRATE ST. JOHN’S 172ND ANNIVERSARY!

This coming Sunday, July 8th, we will be celebrating the 172nd year of the building of our dear historic church, so we’re hoping that lots of you will be able to come  and enjoy the festivities. After the 10am church service we will be serving our traditional delicious treats of Strawberry Shortcake, Tea, Coffee and Strawberry Punch, outside if weather permits or downstairs if not. The famous Whitby Brass Band has been practicing and getting ready to serenade us all outside, weather permitting. There is no charge for this happy annual event, but free-will offerings are always greatly appreciated to help with the food costs. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who are hulling berries, baking cakes, setting up chairs and tables outside, serving the treats, and of course cleaning up afterwards..Please bring a lawn chair if you can, to make sure we’ll have enough seating. 

HOPING TO SEE YOU ALL ON SUNDAY MORNING!
