Council Circle and the Celebrations planning group want to thank the many, many, people who helped plan and execute and clean up the CHILI FIESTA. About 100 folk attended the evening of conversation, music and good food. Your kind donations enabled the event to pay for itself with a tiny bit left over as a “slush fund” for the next event which is scheduled for May. …a “Big Bash”…a celebration of 429 as part of the neighbourhood with a neighbourhood party; as well as a celebration of who we are at this moment of time as a congregation (our affirming anniversary, the closure of the 429 project, the initiation of our ministry as a centre for community and spiritual discovery, our refugee settlement….).
