   A fun morning was had decorating the Christmas tree in the sanctuary at Calvin Presbyterian Church in Halifax, N.S. Unfortunately, we were only able to have a few Advent
services before being shut down because of COVID-19. Florence!
Florence Mair, a long-time member at Point Edward Presbyterian Church in Point Edward, Ont., turned 100 years old on Jan. 2, 2022. Congratulations,
    The congregation of Doon Presbyterian Church in Kitchener, Ont., held a Tree Lighting Celebration for the neighbourhood on Sunday, Nov. 28, 2021. The free event featured hot chocolate and cider, chili, carol singing, easy take-home crafts, “Ugly Sweater” cookie decorating, and the lighting of our huge tree—all done with lots of Covid protocols in place to keep us safe. It was a great way to reconnect with neighbours and kick off the Advent season. About 80–90 people, mostly locals, attended. We hope to do it again in 2022, God willing!
“Share the Warmth” was the Advent project at The Gathering Place Presbyterian Church in Port Colborne, Ont. Three Port Colborne businesses hosted collection boxes for new scarves, hats, gloves and socks, and the Port Cares community agency distributed a mini-mountain of knitwear—donated from all across the Niagara Peninsula—with Christmas food parcels.
