Future of Anglican church discussed


DILIGENT RIVER – The weather is the big topic of discussion lately, but unfortunately we can’t do anything about it. One thing for sure is the grass is growing.

Marjorie Gallant and daughter Lisa Graham, as well as Jacob and Katie, spent some time this week at the Canning homestead.

Leonard and Marjorie Crossman have returned to their home here from Florida. Also back home are Dave and Elaine Baker. It sure is good to see them again. Welcome home, folks.

Regular church services in our Baptist church will be at 7 p.m. for the summer months, with the next service to be May 2.

Sympathy is felt in the community with the passing of a lifelong member, Clarence Allen.

Chelsi Cormier has finished her exams for her second year of nursing at U.N.B.

The St. John’s Anglican Church members and friends have been holding discussions on its future. Services have not been held there for some time, but a revival is in order, as an anniversary service will be held in May. Hopefully there will be many more events and services held there. This community, in the past few years, has lost the school, the store, the post office and streetlights. Surely we can’t lose much more and survive.

As the weather gets better, activities will resume in the community hall.

Birthday wishes go out to Morgan Cormier and Nancy Varner, as well as others who celebrate in April.

A fish cake bean and brown bread supper will be held in the Parrsboro Baptist Church on Saturday. A good attendance is hoped for. All churches seem to be struggling to stay afloat, as fundraisers seem to be the way to go. I guess it’s a sign of the times.

Thought for the week:

Count your smiles instead of your tears. Count your courage instead of your fears.
