    The Gathering is centered around 4 values: friends, faith, food and fun.To learn more about what’s happening and how you can be involved please talk to Geordie or Kathy Hull or email or contact Peter or Mary Ellen Fitch (506-466-5725). Also you can check us out on Facebook under “The Gathering”!
    Helpers are always welcome and needed! You can help with set up/ clean up, cooking, or just hang out and have conversation and enjoy people.
    Thanks to all who donate gently used clothing and household items to the Gathering Store.  If you, or someone you know has a need for these items, please contact us and we’ll try to hook you up!

    Songwriters in the Round: Jacob Rose | Raymond Funk

    February… it’s still winter no-matter how much it rains and it still feels a little cold on the inside — seems like a good time for getting cozy in someone’s living room, listening to music and drinking drinks. Come ‘thaw’ out at Donna Dunsmore’s digs and take in a couple young singer songwriters, Jacob Rose and Raymond Funk, as they take turns sharing their folk/rock/pop ballads and tunes.

    Friday Feb 15th, 7:30PM – 66 Union St. – $10 cover at the door
