BFB - BLUFFS FOOD BANK
We wish to extend a special thanks to all who made such generous donations during the Christmas Season. Your generosity was "over the top" and our shelves are full.
WHITE SUGAR is the requested food item for January and February. This will be a SWEET treat for our families in January and February. Sugar has been "on sale" in recent weeks, so you may even find a bargain for your bucks.
Please visit us at our website for more information about how you too can make a financial donation and receive an automatic income tax receipt. We will gratefully use these donations to purchase sugar and fill some of those nutritious holes to complete hampers when we find things for wholesale and sale prices.

RAINBOW TEA TIME - UPDATE
You can still contribute to our Rainbow Tea Time silk banner.
First of all, thank you Jessie and Aster for leading us in the creation of a Dorothy's Place silk banner.
Last Friday we began stretching the silk banner onto a frame. We also had a brainstorming session about what Dorothy's Place means to our participants. The most popular were community, friendship, a place of safety, renewal. Images that came to mind for some people were holding hands, a rainbow, Phoenix, chrysalis, butterflies, ruby slippers. Words shared among others: "there's no place like Dorothy's", "home is where the heart is".
This Friday we will finish the design and begin the process of transferring it into the banner. There are still a couple of spots left so you are invited to bring a design that we can incorporate into the final design.
BBUC's youth group (ages 13-17) will be meeting on Friday, January 31, from 7-10 p.m., at the church (33 East Rd) for a movie and popcorn night. All youth welcome!

THE KNITTING PILGRIM
Kirk Dunn will be presenting his one-man play, The Knitting Pilgrim, featuring the Stitched Glass tapestries, at Beach United Church, 140 Wineva Avenue, on Saturday, March 7, 2020, at 8 p.m. Tickets - $20 (show to benefit Community Centre 55).
The large knitted panels, designed in the style of stained-glass windows, look at the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic Faiths – and took Kirk an incredible 15 years to knit. The play tells the story of Kirk’s artistic and spiritual journey working on this ambitious project about interfaith empathy, and has been seen across Ontario at theatres, churches, and the Aga Khan Museum.
