New Salem church in need of new roof, repairs
Hi again everyone from the outer edges of Advocate Harbour with the beautiful view of the harbour and Bay of Fundy. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week.
Well, there isn’t much for news going on as everyone is busy with Christmas preparations, but I would like to leave you with this christmass message...
Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

The Spencer’s Island annual Christmas Eve Service will be held Friday, Dec. 24, at 4 p.m. Once again there will be special music including the Branch of the Living Christmas Tree Youth Choir and several soloists, as well as the favourite Christmas Story, The Birth of Christ, narrated by Roxanne Morris and Arden Fletcher. Please plan to attend this service as all are welcome.
The New Salem Union Church is going to need a new roof and other repairs next year, so in the spring they will be doing fundraising and will also accept donations at any time if given.
