It has been decided that we no longer do the Pea Soup share Life charity, so it will be a regular breakfast only. I don’t know when we first started this, it would not surprise me if it was 25 years ago. You all have contributed over the years and deserve a heartfelt Thank You. Over the years we probably contributed $30 to  $40.000.00 dollars.

Dear Kolping Members!

So we are good to go for the next six months. We had a wonderful summer in Toronto and area.

Our picnic at Inge and Werner’s place was well attended. Father Miller said the mass again, everybody was there. We are very grateful for making it possible. A perfect place for this event.

The Kolping World Day of Prayer is officially on Tuesday Oct. 27th, We have taken the liberty to move it to Nov. 11th and included it in our communion breakfast. The country of Honduras is the official sponsor. Surprisingly they have 1800 members 189 branches. Very impressive.

We presently have 11 executive members. We normally elect 10 but right now we have 11. So we don’t have to elect nobody new at the G.M. So it should move smoothly.

We will need to decide again on the distribution of the $5000.00 in donations for this year. We are planning to increase the donations to $7,000.00 Any ideas and suggestions are always welcome. Last year we settled on the following donations:
Out of the Cold $ 1500.00 Asha Deep Orphanage $1000.00 Bazaar    $ 500. Marylake Retreat house $ 500.00.  Settling the new Pakatani family $1500. 00.

Just talked to Heinz Wensing who is supposed have some health issues. He tells me he just came inside from cutting the grass with his tractor. He never slows down. He is an example of toughness.
