to approximately 22,000 individuals in the Halton Region. St. Luke's is one of the
distribution centres.
To help cover operating costs the 3rd annual Lunch Money Tuesday will be held
on May 31st at the Halton Go Stations. Volunteers are needed for the morning rush
period of 6:00am - 9:00am.
Training and materials will be provided on the day by the two station masters
assigned to each station. You may choose which station is best for you and be
reassured that there is no specific skill required and it's FUN! It is also a one off and
a great way of being involved with social outreach.
Please prayfully consider helping by phoning Deacons Anne 905 333 4704 or

                  June 2, 2011, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

By 2015 it is estimated that one out of every seven people in Halton will be aged 65 or over.
This demographic shift will impact many elements of life in Halton, including businesses, health
and social services, recreation, transportation, and government. There is a growing need for
communities in Halton to examine what changes can be made that will make it easier for
seniors to be safe, maintain their health, and participate fully in their community
     On Thursday, June 2, 2011 the Halton Region Elder Services Advisory Committee (ESAC)
will host an Age-Friendly Communities Forum that aims to bring together Halton seniors,
business representatives, and community stakeholders to develop ideas on how to continue to
build age-friendly communities in Halton. The information collected at this forum will be used to
develop opportunities for action that will be shared with Regional Council and the Halton
community. Registration for the Age-Friendly Communities Forum is open to all Halton
residents. Lunch will be provided.
              For more information or to register for the community forum,
         call Cindy Devai at Halton Region – (905) 825-6000, extension 7773.

independence and family sustainability for these brave people.

will be hosted here in Burlington, at Heritage Park. The team

Gardening at St Luke's

Every year a team of faithful volunteer gardeners work
diligently to supply that extra touch to our gardens at the front of the
church, around the hall, the Ferguson plot, and the memorial garden
(surrounding the columbarium). Our memorial garden volunteer, Fred
Hall, has resigned (for reasons beyond his control!) and we thank him for
his service over the years. So, we are looking for a volunteer or small
team of volunteers to look after the memorial garden. If you are interested,
please contact Michael Skafel, at 905 332 0837.
