The "Seniors Moment" Christmas Party at St. Agnes, North Vancouver in mid-December was a great success. There was a full turkey dinner with all the trimmings, holiday sweet treats, a sing-a-long and more. Bette, Holly and the Reverend Lizz Lindsay, deacon at St. Agnes' did a fantastic job of providing a meal for some 65 guests. By the third week of December Lizz and Bette had served nearly 500 meals to hungry folks who may not have access to a Christmas dinner at several locations throughout North Vancouver.
It was announced on December 20th that the Reverend Lizz Lindsay was nominated for and awarded this year's Good Neighbour Award by the publication Lynn Valley Life. Please click the link to access the article. Lizz was nominated by Wilna Parry a long time parishioner of St.Clement's in Lynn Valley and the award was announced by Lynn Valley Life team member, Peggy Trendell-Jensen who is a parishioner at St. Catherine's, Capilano. Definitely a profound Anglican connection to compassionate service food ministry in the North Vancouver Region.
Congratulations Lizz and congratulations to all of the folks that work so hard to make Sharing Abundance such a successful compassionate service ministry.
Lizz will be presented a plaque in recognition of the award at a future date.
Many thanks to the Reverend Stephen Muir for previously published material.
