    Victoria Street Garden

    We’ll be getting out registration details for VicStreet’s 2018 season out next week. Please email us vicstreetgarden@gmail.com for any pre-registration details, like confirming your plots. Remember that members can register for up to 2 beds per household, so if you are returning please confirm what beds you want this year (especially if you were able to have a third bed last year post-registration as you can only initially register for 2).

    And if you know anyone who is interested in gardening at VicStreet please have them email or connect them with me or Carol Thiessen! You can also follow on our Facebook page.

    Carousel – Things Fitch’s Love!

    This week, we will be meeting in the cafe upstairs at the Vineyard Center to watch the Australian movie, Danny Deckchair. All are welcome!

    As part of the new Carousel program, Peter and Mary Ellen are kicking things off with a special group that will meet for the first four Thursday evenings in May. The first one, May 3, was watching and discussing the movie ‘Wide Awake’. The second Thursday, May 10, is a concert with Hayden Wiebe, Colourful Language and Joshua Hyslop (suggested donation $15 – see separate event page). The third Thursday, May 17, is for watching and discussing the movie, ‘Danny Deckchair’. The fourth Thursday, May 24, will be a potluck kitchen party, open to all! Feel free to bring refreshments of your choice to all events! There are 5 Thursdays in May, but the Fitch’s love breaks, so nothing on May 31!

    Andrew Smith has started a new initiative, a subscription podcast of spiritual songs, many with a post-church flavour. We have shared some of the songs from this collection at SCV over the last couple of years. Think of your subscription to ‘This Light Lingers – A Year Of Song’ as a monthly contemplative podcast. Two songs per month will be released for 12 months – a year of song! EnJOY! You can subscribe here.
