  • The 174th Annual Running & Novelty Race at Swannanoa.  Lots of fun from babies to 100+.

The Church is also organizing their Annual Salvation Army Food Drive

In 2011, a new method for gathering food drive donations was introduced where bags of non-perishable food items were picked up from door steps in the community. Volunteers gathered 77 bags of food and collected $875.

Due to the success of last year’s efforts, the volunteers from the Sturgeon Point Union Church and
the Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club will once again be dropping off empty grocery bags at
your home or cottage on the August long weekend.

 Kindly fill up the bag with non perishable items in
support of this year’s Food Drive.

The volunteers will be around again on Monday August 6th between 3:00-5:00pm
to pick up your filled grocery bag. Please leave your bag at your front door step or porch
for collection by Monday afternoon.

Other Drop Off Options:
Sunday August 5th, Sturgeon Point Union Church Service
Monday August 6th, Civic Weekend Running Races at Swannanoa

 Donations are also gratefully accepted with
cheques made out to:

Salvation Army Food Bank

Hope everyone enjoys this fun filled weekend!
