On October 2, 2015, we celebrated our 15th Anniversary with a Gala evening held at Southgate Community Church in Kemptville. Our speaker, founding executive director Anne Medders, shared a message based on the inspiration of Rev. Lloyd Casin, “Hope is the ability to hear the melody of the future. Faith gives us the power to sing that song today.” As we reflect back on those early days, we are in awe of all that the Lord has accomplished in our 15 years of existence, we are truly thankful. The 125 people who attended the evening were treated to a beautiful dance routine by the Svitanok Ukrainian Dance Society. As well, Dial-a-Chef provided a scrumptious meal and Edible Sins spoiled us with delicious desserts! We were able to raise close to $17,000 to support our work; we are very grateful to each person who helped make our evening a success. We’re already planning for next year so save the date: October 21, 2016. We’d love you to join us!
