Humboldt Broncos Squares Project
April 21, 2018 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

There is a lady in Winnipeg who has started an initiative to crochet squares to make blankets for all the people affected in the terrible bus crash in Saskatchewan. Originally her plan was to make 15 blankets - one for each family who has lost someone in this tragedy.  The project has taken on a life of its own and now she is hoping to give blankets to the survivors, First Responders, nurses and doctors, and others affected by the loss of these boys.

Our knitting/crochet group have started making squares for the blankets. If anyone else has made squares, we have booked Classroom 1 on April 21st to collect the squares up and start sewing them into blankets.  If anyone would like to join us, either just to drop the squares off or come and assemble the blankets, we would be happy to see you between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A donation towards postage would be much appreciated. Other groups doing this have suggested a dollar a square, but anything will help. Any money left over will be sent to Winnipeg so that the blankets can be posted to the intended recipients.

If you would like more information on this project, please contact the Church Office at 519-658-4547 or via email at www.stjamesang.ca. If you would like to drop off squares but can't make it on this date arrangements can be made for pickup of the squares through the Church Office.

COCKTAILS ‘N CANVAS-PAINTING PARTY!

             THURSDAY, APRIL 26TH 

St. James’ is hosting another exciting fundraiser!  Cocktails ‘N Canvas is a fun painting night that is growing in popularity. We did one of these paint nights last year, and it was well attended and enjoyed by all!   You sign up for the painting night, come out to the venue, and you have a professional artist lead you through painting your very own artwork, step by step.  You will go home with a finished piece of work!  Whether you regularly paint, or you haven’t picked up a brush since high school, these events are for you! Our event will be held at the Duke and Duchess, 900 Jamieson Parkway in Cambridge, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.  These events are all held at local venues, in order to support them if anyone wishes to purchase a beverage or munchies for the evening.  It’s easy to register!  Just visit this website: https://www.cocktailsncanvas.com/event/qzO7 to see the beautiful painting we will be creating, and sign up online.  A portion of the proceeds from this painting night will go directly to St. James’! Spread the word!  Invite your friends and family!   Please share the link on your Facebook page! It’s a great night out!  Space is limited to first come, first served. If you have any questions, please contact the Church Office at 519-658-4547 or office@stjamesang.ca.

CENDRILLON OPERA 

Saturday, April 28th starting at 1:00 pm

On Saturday April 28th at 1PM the Metropolitan Opera is presenting another Live in HD transmission of an opera. Cendrillon is the French for Cinderella and is definitely a more family oriented topic than the tragedy La Boheme. The opera starts at 1PM and for people from St. James who wish to go together, we can meet early. If you have never been to an opera, there are now several of us who have. There will be subtitles and the singing is slow enough to read the words easily. There is also a synopsis available to read prior to the performance. This opera is a very easy first opera to go to because the story is so well known. Please let the Church Office know if you wish to come so we can meet together outside the theatre, read the story and ask questions. Phone 519-658-4547 or email office@stjamesang.ca.
