A first president and a big thank-you!

The Friends of Beaverdams Church are excited to announce the results of its first cohort of executive officers for the 2104–16 term. A group of 22 members attended to elect (or confirm the nomination of):
• David Cowan as President
• Melanie Battell as Vice-President
• John Henderson as Treasurer
• Leslie Daniels as Secretary
• Sarah King Head as Membership Coordinator.

Congratulations to them all!

The Friends would also like to extend a huge “Thank You” to Teresa and John Tepylo along with volunteer Friends and students from Thorold Secondary School for hosting the annual fertilizer sale. In spite of the miserable weather, an impressive $1135 was raised to support restoration efforts at the Church.

Thank you all for your continued support!


We also want to remind everyone of the upcoming 36th Annual Arts & Craft Show at the Thorold Arena (Front Street North and St David’s Road, Thorold). The one-day event will be held Saturday May 10 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Come and see Alan Daniels’ model of the church, and stay to enjoy the offerings of 80 juried artists and artisans from across Ontario. Admission is $2.

Lots of free parking.  For more information, call (905) 227 7248 or email cathy.henderson@sympatico.ca 


And, looking into June, don’t forget to start saving up your clean, saleable household items (no soft furnishings, mattresses, clothing or computers, please) to donate to the Second Annual Friends of Beaverdams Church Yard Sale: June 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (with a rain date of June 21).
