The Uxbridge Fall Fair wishes to thank the Cosmos for the extensive assistance it has provided again this past year. Poster design, publication of press releases, photos and articles and assistance with ads are a few examples.
This year’s Fair was highly successful. Weather was a key factor and so was the Cosmos. Thank you.
Thank you also to the community for your unwavering support. Hope to see you at the 164th!
I just want to take a moment to remind everyone in Uxbridge Township of the Community Soup Lunch that is held at St. Andrew’s Chalmers Church Hall (40B Toronto Street South) every Wednesday for 28 weeks beginning October 11, and continues right through until the last Wednesday in April (excluding Christmas week).
The Soup Lunch is open to everyone. There is no set cost. Lunch guests donate whatever they can, and all proceeds go to the Loaves and Fishes Food Bank. Many of the approximately 45 lunch guests return weekly for the social time and the delicious meal.
The Soup Lunch is hosted by various groups – church groups, community groups such as 1st Uxbridge Scout Group and Uxbridge Public School, and businesses such as Shoppers Drug Mart. All host groups report how fulfilling it is working together to give back to our community by providing a nutritious meal to others.
A typical meal provided by the host group includes a choice of up to 6 delicious homemade soups (or chili or macaroni casserole), bread and butter, dessert, coffee/tea, milk and cream for about 45 people.
Please consider getting a group together to host one week or even two. There are numerous spots still available for the upcoming season. Hosting a Community Soup Lunch would be the perfect activity as a work team building event, or for any group of six or more (like a book club or a group of friends) looking for an opportunity to give back our fantastic community.
If you’ve got some great soup recipes you’d love to try, please contact John Gould at 905-852-4753 for more information.
