Londonderry Lines: Community support abundant, making various events a huge success

We are busy in Londonderry and Great Village preparing for an "old-fashion Canada" celebration on July 1.

The Thirsty Church's annual Mother's Day Rock-a-Thon was a huge success. Ladies in the community had a great time rocking and offer thanks to everyone who made the event successful.

There will be many activities planned for the day. Check us out on Facebook at Community Canada Day Celebration 2015 and the Great Village Volunteer Fire Department has a really great surprise in store for us!

On Sunday, June 7, beginning at 6 p.m., the first soccer lesson will take place at the Londonderry Community Centre. This is a free program for children ages three to 10 with informal instruction for soccer and T-ball during the summer months. It is a great opportunity to get your children active in their community. Volunteers are welcome. For more information email Vicki at

There will be a celebration of life visitation with the families of Ivan "Pete" Johnson who passed away March 2. The service will be held at the Londonderry Community Centre on July 25 from 2 to 4 p.m. and everyone is welcome.

The Thirsty Church project offers a huge thank you to everyone who supported the annual Mother's Day Rock-a-Thon. The ladies had a lovely time rocking and thanks to community support it was a great success.

Also, the church's Valuable Village sale was a hit! Not only were more than 40 bags of clothes sold to some very happy shoppers, we were also able to donate just as much to the Colchester Community Workshop. Thank you to everyone who donated clothing and shoes, and thank you to all of our shoppers.

Did you get your pie at the annual Hillcrest Cemetery supper? If you missed out this time there will be another chance soon. Plans are already in the works for the next fundraising supper. Thank you to all who came out to the Hillcrest Cemetery supper and those who donated to the fundraiser.

Another upcoming event is Jamie Lynn Rushton hosting a summer camp for children ages five to 12 from July 13 to 17 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Londonderry Community Centre. The fee for camp is $75 for the week, $125 if you sign up with a buddy, or $175 if sign up with two buddies. Buddies can be a friend or family member and they must pay and register together. Snacks will be provided and children must bring their lunch and water. Call 902-670-8164 or email for more details.
