Wed@Knox, Nov 27 – Janis Randall Simpson: New Canadian Food Guide – In January Canada’s Health Minister released a new Canada Food Guide that emphasizes fruits and vegetables, whole grain foods and protein. Instead of eating food from four groups, we are encouraged to follow three guidelines on what to eat regularly, what to avoid, and the importance of cooking and preparing meals at home. Janis (a professor of applied human nutrition and member at Knox) will walk us through the new guide. Janis collaborates with Health Canada on various projects, but her major research project has been the development of NutriSTEP, a nutrition risk screening questionnaire focused on preschoolers.
The Tech Team urgently needs a couple of volunteers to join each of the sound, multimedia and video teams. If you are interested, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or see Eric Gaudet (sound and video) or Andrew Church (multimedia). For details, you can watch this short video: https://bit.ly/2pCArf2
Gifts of Change – This year give gifts with meaning! By making a donation in honour of a friend, teacher, or loved one, you can help to support the many programs here at Knox, or donate through the PWS&D Gifts of Change catalogue. Giving a gift through these options is a unique way to carry out life-changing programs that are responding to needs both here at home and worlds away. Come to the Global Partners table at coffee hour to find out more about these alternative gift options. We can provide a card insert describing your gift to give to your honouree as well as a Christmas card and small ornament.
Christmas Volunteers Needed! Please consider serving as ushers, greeters, readers, candle teams, etc. for our Longest Night Service and Christmas Eve Services. Sign up sheets are on the bulletin board. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Senior High are taking order for Poinsettias (white, red, pink and four different sizes). TODAY is the last day you can sign up on the bulletin board, or email your order to Linda@knoxwaterloo.ca. Plants will be delivered to Knox from Warren Greenhouses on December 10th. Money raised will support the Ray of Hope dinners in the spring.
Many thanks to all the fall term Food for Thought cooks! A new cooks’ sign-up sheet for Winter Term 2020 is now on the Knox bulletin board. Thanks for considering sharing your gift of hospitality with hungry and veryappreciative students!
The Knox Craft and Bake sale was held November 9th and we were once again blessed with an amazing assortment of generous donations. The Bazaar brought in a total of $3,300. Funds raised at the Bazaar have been allocated for risers for the choir, ear buds for the Praise Band, two printers, a new office computer, updating of the phone system and the black high tables used in the hall. We want to send a huge “Thank You” to all the contributors. We couldn’t have done it without you!
