The program goes until February 10, 2021. So if you have stamps to share, please put them into an envelope and drop the envelope in the church mailbox at the hall or bring them to the office.

**Volunteer Librarian Needed – We have been very fortunate to hire Sarah Stephens on an 8 week contract through a Canada Summer Works grant. She has organized and catalogued the books in St. Luke’s Library in the Lounge. She has added around 250 books to the 560 which were already in the library! Her position will finish the first week of February and we are looking for someone who could take on coming in a couple of hours a month to reshelve books, input books to be catalogued, and help to promote St. Luke’s library. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Barb Prescott through the Church Office or by e-mail ([email protected]
