The congregation of St. Matthew’s Presbyterian Church in Grand Falls–Windsor, N.L., added Canadian Foodgrains Bank to its community outreach projects earlier this year, calling the fundraiser “Change for Grains.” While some members put their donation in the miniature silo, most include it in their offering envelope. Either way, “Change for Grains” is receiving great support. Since March, more than $300 has been raised.
    Neither Covid, nor fire restoration work, nor a broken furnace could keep St. Matthew’s Presbyterian Church in Grand Falls–Windsor, N.L., from eventually honouring organist Aimee Doiron (right) for 20 years of service. Aimee started as organist in November 2000, but recognition of the milestone reached in 2020 was delayed by one thing after another. At last, she received a gift from the congregation in March, and elder Lynne Allan made the presentation.
An antique pendulum wall clock was given and dedicated to Salem Presbyte- rian Church in Greenhill, N.S., by the former St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church in Salt Springs, which closed on Nov. 21, 2021. Shown is Jonah Smith and his mother, Cyndi Parks, and clerk of Session, Bill Ross.
   In celebration of Earth Day, and to celebrate Pastor Cherie Inksetter’s 10 years with the congregation of St. Giles Presbyterian Church in St. Catharines, Ont., a small, intrepid group of Sunday School children and adults braved the rain to plant 10 Tower Poplars along the church perimeter.
