As always, please continue to send us your announcements at bugle@riverviewcc.ca and we will continue to trumpet them to the community!

Upcoming Community Events
Grands 'n' More

THIS Thursday, November 5, FROM 6:45 - 7:15, at the Club, come get your holiday shopping started! Grands'n'More's tote bags, mini and maxi-bags, aprons, casserole totes, baby bibs, balloon covers, etc will be available for purchase. Click HERE for a preview.

As well, if you are seeking a "social justice" gift for someone, our Warm Up to Winnipeg scarves may fill that bill. A donation of $5.00 for a child, or $10.00 for an adult will give a newly-arrived refugee a warm, hand-knitted scarf.

All the monies raised - as with our other items - goes to the Stephen Lewis Foundation supports for African grandmothers caring for their AIDS-orphaned grandchildren. That donation gives you a card to send to the person in whose name the scarf was donated.

(Feel free to stay for our meeting, if you wish!!)


This 55+ interest group meets this Thursday for Fellowship, games, hymn signing and more.
