FUNDrive at Epiphany

You know, one of the best things of being a part of Epiphany is all the fun we have. Even when we’re working we have fun. Wednesday November 17, our assigned delivery date finally arrived, the culmination of a year’s collection of Garage Sale items. As you know Epiphany usually has a couple of Garage sales each year. The Covid pandemic put an end to that. One of our members saw an ad from Value Village called FUNDrive. When she checked into it she discovered that we could save then deliver our usual Garage Sale items to VV and get paid for it. What a great idea!!!. So we started collecting, and collecting, and collecting. The Hall basement filled up and still items were arriving. The Church basement filled up and still more items. Then, just as it seemed Epiphany’s walls were going to burst we got together, safely masked and loaded 2 large UHaul trucks and took everything to Value Village on Wellington Road South. The accumulated bagged and boxed items (clothing, footwear, linens, pots and pans and other small household items – you know, everything but the kitchen sink) weighed in at over 5000 pounds. A big thank you to everyone who contributed. It was a lot of work, but as you can see in the pictures, many hands make work light – and fun. I heard many laughs, giggles and happy noises as we worked delivering these things to VV (Another huge thank you to our volunteer loaders – way to go Epiphanites!!!) By the way, did I tell you, Value Village paid us for these things. A win win as I see it.


Green Gators Remember

Several years ago after our annual Service of Remembrance we noticed children’s artwork attached to the fence around the cenotaph courtyard. After a little sleuthing we discovered that the Western Daycare “Orange Owls” had visited and left a Remembrance Day inspired piece of art. We contacted Western Day Care and found that one of the teachers, Julia had been bringing her class over each Remembrance Day. We got in touch with Julia and from that day the Orange Owls, and this year, the Green Gators have been sharing Remembrance Day with us.
Unfortunately, during the last two Remembrance Days the children have not been able to walk over to the cenotaph,
so we have been visiting them at the school instead.

Remembrance Day 2020

The 103rd version of the service of Remembrance at the cenotaph was a little different this year. We were restricted to a maximum of 25 people all properly distanced. We wound up with precisely 25. To start the ceremony we were treated by a flyby by a C130 Hercules (the aircraft Ron flew in the RCAF). Rev. Teresa read In Flanders Fields. Ron did the Act of Remembrance. Dan lowered the flag during the Last Post. Altogether the service lasted about 15 minutes. Here are some pictures of the event.

 

Before the Service, Ron and Jan visited the Orange Owls for a brief ceremony. The London Free Press was present and took the following picture. The Orange Owls have been visiting our Cenotaph for approximately 15 years on each November 11. In the past several years Ron and Jan have hosted the little ones and their teachers for a brief child friendly ceremony at the Cenotaph. This year due to the pandemic the Orange Owls were not able to leave their school.

Canada Day at Epiphany

Hello Everyone

I know we can’t be together at Epiphany on Canada day, but I want to share our Music Director Anusha’s version of O’Canada with you.

She very generously shared it with Rev Teresa. So here it is for all to here. Let’s all pretend we’re together and loud as possible sing along with Anusha’s playing.

Garden 2020

Hi Folks

Someone’s been working in the garden Hint Hint (ask Teresa). If you can spare some time weeding and watering, that would be much appreciated.

Valentine Party Feb 14 2020

We had a great time on Valentine’s day this year. Laurraine Sigouin and the Enchante group entertained, and what a party it was!!!

 

Highlight of the Evening was Laurraine singing Steve H and Ron S new song Hearts and Roses.

Tea and Paint

 

The tea and paint afternoon was a great success resulting in a donation of $500 by London’s Civitan Club to Rotholme Women’s and Family Shelter. See Photos below.
