Special thanks to Artís Drilling who has re-imbursed the full amount of the cost of drilling test holes for our new church.

Last week a cheque in the amount of $353.10 made out to St. Johnís Building fund was received from Art and Luella Kroeker, owner of Arts Drilling.

Also a big thank you to Bob Cowan who with the help of Denis, watered our new trees free of charge during our recent dry spell.

Our Corn & Apple Bingo Committee would like to thank everyone who donated their time and vehicles to help make this Building Fundraiser a success!

The net profit for 2003 was $3,086.24.

Over the five years we have run this event, we have raised $15,944.85.

When our GICíS from this account come due in October, we will add another 683.73 in interest to this amount, giving us a grand total of $16,628.58.

Itís a lot of work, but it is worth the effort.Thank you for your cooperation.

Denise, Basil, Linda
