Meals on Wheels: As for the past number of years, St. Andrew's is responsible for delivering Meals on Wheels for the month of August again this year. An increase in the number of people utilizing this community service, requires a need for more volunteer drivers. Those who have helped in the past will be contacted shortly to see if they can assist again. If you are new to the congregation, or would like to become involved in this community program, you are invited to call Linda Crabbe, 403-782-2994, for information.
As well, if anyone is interested in assisting with coordinating this short term, annual project, I would happily share the duties required.
