Listowel Credit Union at 40

Listowel Credit Union know how to throw a party. 

The hard working Committee were in celebratory mood . The sleeves were rolled up and all the stops were pulled out to make sure that we all had a good time.

Mike Sheehy and John Stack were among the guests.

There was face painting, piggy banks and pencil cases for the children.

Catering was done by John R.’s and there was a mouth watering array of goodies on offer.

Here’s to the next 40 years!

A recent lecture in St. John’s by Rev. Bob Fyffes addressed the topic of Brokenness. Jer was there and he sent us this video. People I spoke to who were there were very impressed by this man.
