Due to the province wide lockdown that begins on April 3rd, Saturday, at 12:01am, the 5 United Churches have decided to cancel tomorrow’s Pilgrimage of the Cross event. Unfortunately, the information is confusing on the number of people that can gather outdoors, and so we decided that we would lead by example and are asking everyone to stay at home and stay safe.
I hope this doesn’t cause any problem or too much confusion. An email will be sent to those that receive the Maple Grove enews later today.
Since I won’t see you on Saturday, please keep well and stay safe. Happy Easter!!!
btw- the mgY group will meet again on Friday April 9th at 7pm. More information next week.
This American video explains quite clearly how the vaccine was tested and how it works.

Right now, we are apart far more than we would like. We are testing to see if the e-news can help narrow that gap a little by keeping us up-to-date on what is happening with our members.
The enews will, with your consent, publish the big and little news of our lives such as birthdays, anniversaries, children and grandchildren or COVED19 vaccinations..
