On a mild winter afternoon, Friday, March 6, people gathered at the Kenton United Church for World Day of Prayer. The service was written by The Bahamas WDP Committee and was titled “Do
You Know What I Have Done To You.” The event was hosted by the Ladies Auxiliary.
The afternoon began with a DVD about The Bahamas and then a processional of those taking part in the service proceeded to the front of the church while singing a short song with those who
were present. Readings and songs as well as a Bible reading were given throughout the afternoon.
An offering was taken and a Benediction and Blessing was given to close the service. Bright colors and beautiful fl owers decorated the church of which The Bahamas is known for and
the participants were also dressed in bright colors.
Everyone enjoyed refreshments and fellowship following the service.
Saturday, March 7 some members of the Ladies Auxiliary travelled to Rivers, MB for the District Meeting held in the Legion Hall.
Upon our arrival we registered, paid for lunch and bought raffl e tickets and visited until lunch was ready. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and had a very informative afternoon learning about what
the different Auxiliaries had been busy doing for the past year.
We took a brief mid-afternoon break for coffee. Several jokes were told during the afternoon and we had a lot of laughs. Upon adjournment of the
meeting raffle draws were made and the prizes were handed out.
We had a very enjoyable time and it was nice that the weather cooperated so that it made travel easier for all those who attended the afternoon.
One of veterans, John Roseveare has moved to Hamiota to Lilac Residence. He has visited the coffee group at the Kenton Legion a few times and told us that he is enjoying living there. If you are
ever in Hamiota drop in to see him for a visit as he always likes to have a chat.
