Windy, dull gray and a bit cool, but that didn’t dampen the Easter spirit this year as we had our biggest attendance ever with over 300 folks showing up and we had close to 100 taking the plunge after the service.
We raised $5000.00 for the Ian Supra medical fund (Way to go everyone – Strong Work) and had a great service/swim and fantastic breakfast. The breakfast was phenomenal thanks to our cooks and we went through all the bacon and sausages and 25 lbs of pancake mix (Super big thanks to Kirsten and Larry for the amazing food donation and Ron for all the bakery items). Many thanks to all the volunteers (I am reluctant to list because I know that I will forget some but here goes anyway) Pastor Tom Welch and family, Mi , Hugh Gabriel, Dawn, The Flower Man, Mike Mallamus, Mark Myers, Jay Madigan, Glen, Teri Ratcliff, Kathleen, Gene and Terry Augustine, Chris Supra, Jerry, Sam, Alexa, Audrey, Robin, Barb and Dennis.
So everyone did a great job except someone forgot to put in the weather request (Tom’s Job). Well it turns out that when Tom woke this AM it was raining so he put in a prayer request for no rain and this worked. Next year we are going to get Tom to be a bit more specific. We all realize that it didn’t rain, but it could have just as easily snowed and his prayer would have been answered as requested.
