Come early to the Londonderry Centre on Friday, Oct. 18 to get first dibs on all the treasures. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and calling will start at 6 p.m. Admission is free and tickets are $1 for 100. There will be a 50/50 draw and a door prize. All proceeds go to the centre. Please call 890-4242 if you have items you would like to donate. It’s guaranteed to be an excellent time.
There will be a fundraising ball tournament on Saturday, Oct. 19th at the Londonderry Ball Field. All proceeds will go to Dylan McMullen, who was seriously injured when the vehicle he was travelling in collided with horses on Hwy 104 in September. It starts at 9 a.m. and there will be a canteen. Come out to watch a great game of ball in support of a great cause. Donations will be graciously accepted.
The Londonderry Station Community Church is pleased to have ministerial services provided by Rev. Brian Delong on the first and third Sunday of every month at 2 p.m. through until the end of December. All are welcome.
The Londonderry Kids Group is starting up again for the school year at the Londonderry Community Centre on Thursdays from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. A light healthy snack will be provided. A variety of activities and games are always available. Please call 668-2876 to register.
A “Big Kids” computer club is also starting on Thursday evenings at the community centre from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. It is meant for adults in the community who have a laptop and want to learn more about it, and its capabilities. Things are always better when shared, so the learning will be done in pairs. If you don’t have a partner, we'll find you a buddy, so come along. Topics covered could include email, PowerPoint, writing letters, resumes, loading and organizing pictures, movie-maker, etc. A computer with a router is available, so the hall is Internet ready. Please call 668-2876 to register.
The flower-arranging workshop as part of the Londonderry Heritage Series was a great success in Oct. 8 and 13 participants left with a beautiful Thanksgiving flower arrangement courtesy of The Thirsty Church Project and the Along the Shore Community Health Board. Special thanks to Florence Dobson of Cascading Creations event planning who facilitated the workshop. The next Londonderry Heritage Series will be all about Christmas baking. Stay tuned for details. For early registration into this free workshop, call 668-2300.
Happy Birthday Sue Conway.
