Grateful Thanks to Cross CultureOn Saturday, March 29th., an enthusiastic group of young individuals from a city-wide organization known as "CrossCulture" converged at the Parish of St David's Presbyterian Church to assist by cleaning up the flotsam and jetsam that winter (and time) leaves behind. Sufficient to say that these 21 young men and women, under the coordination of Margaret Siquenza, made significant strides, leaving behind a much cleaner and tidier establishment.
On the same day, another group of young people, also from CrossCulture, descended upon the Church of St John and St Andrew on Tisdale Ave N in Hamilton. Under the coordination of Ross Yelland, these cleanup 'angels' made short work of our tiny lawns and bush area; removing the litter and transforming them once again into the green space they were intended to be. Those happy workers that were inside, also steadfastly made short work of the sanctuary pews and the tables and chairs in the Fish Friendship Hall; removing the grime and grit that time leaves behind. All workers were treated afterwards to lunch in the clean hall where tales of their exploits were shared amongst friends. The people of these two congregations want to express their thanks to the young people of CrossCulture, and in particular to thank them for their initiative and dedication in this effort.
"Our most heartfelt thanks go out to Sarah Dear at CrossCulture for supplying such willing, hardworking young people at both churches."
