Bridgeview Community Outreach Program Christmas Gathering


The Bridgeview Community Outreach Program held their Christmas gathering this past Sunday at the former St. Mark's Church. Here is an email I received from Rita Higgins along with some pictures from the event.

"The Bridgeview Community Outreach Program Inc., held it's annual Christmas Dinner on December 7, 2014.  It was a great success!

There aren’t enough words to describe the wonderful day we had! Everyone had a great time! Thanks to all those who attended! 

Firstly, THANK YOU Pastor Patrick of Adullum Church of God for reading us the true meaning of Christmas in The Book of Luke Chapter two and for the use of the hall and kitchen!

THANK YOU Mike Dumont who got the pilot light in the oven to light!! Without that, the dinner would not have been the success it was!

THANK YOU Linda Hill for the donation of vegetables and deserts!

THANK YOU to Tammy Murray who came through with side dishes and desert, serving, and clean up.

THANK YOU George Baldwin who ran to the Dollar Store for various forgotten items and additional last minute gifts!

THANK YOU Becca Alb, for all the help in the kitchen, and random photo taking!

THANK YOU Joe Boca for taking the photos of the kids with Santa, and helping Lucas peel all those potatoes!!

THANK YOU Zelka Trepanier for the Christmas cake!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Joan Mavrinac, who came through with hams, and was a TROOPER, to say the least, in the kitchen during and after dinner, replacing food, and doing dishes!

Lastly, THE BIGGEST THANK YOU to my husband, Cary Higgins (A.K.A. “Santa”), for being THE BEST Santa we’ve ever seen! You were fabulous! The kids loved you, and so did the parents! (I do too :) )

There was a ton of left-over food and deserts, so we packed it up, and donated it all to The Welcome Centre Shelter for Women! They were very thankful!! The extra canned goods were donated to the church, as they want to start a food bank! We are already looking forward to next year!
