As usual, our annual Thanksgiving dinner and auction was a great success. About 80 people from the various church communities and elsewhere enjoyed the delicious turkeys donated by Eric and Sue Boulton and cooked by generous volunteers. As well, there were dozens of main course dishes and desserts brought by those in attendance.

This was followed by Eric Boulton auctioning off an array of gift baskets and other assorted items. The $600 raised by the auction will be divided equally among PHC, school lunch programme, and The Gathering Place. The door donations which support GES programmes, social events, and spring forums totalled approximately $700. Many thanks to all the people who gave their their time and energy to organize, work at, and support our annual Thanksgiving dinner without which it would be difficult to carry on the valuable work of the Gabriola Ecumenical Society.
