A DAY IN LAKING’S WOODS
The ladies and gentlemen of Trinity enjoyed a day learning about the history of the local area as well as enjoying the warmth and a shaded walk along various trails through Jim and Marina Laking's forest south of Glencairn. The stop at Stevenson's general store in Glencairn gave them an opportunity to see items on display that have been preserved there since the store opened in 1840. The next stop was at St. James Anglican Church Clougher where Nancy Monkman told us about the rich history of the church since it was founded in 1886 and about her life growing up in that area and attending that church. The highlight of the day for the 19 people in attendance was the camaraderie shared in Laking's woods as we broke bread together, learned more about the local flora and fauna, and took turns using a two-person cross cut saw.
As one parishioner said, “It was a joy fellowshipping with nature and our Trinity family. A special thank you to the Laking family for your hospitality and sharing your little slice if heaven with us." Please see the pictures below.
We are looking forward to the next event in October, which will be a garden work party.
