**Some changes this year**
These changes will allow us to focus our last morning together preparing the facilities and grounds we love for the next people using the space.
This brings us to our next important point.
How can we show our Sr. High young people how much they mean to us by worshipfully preparing the space for them? This is a vital part of our shared reunion experience and every helping hand is needed.
Please help us by signing up for your “duties” online before the start of Reunion at https://noronto.ca/dutysignup . There are tabs at the bottom of the online signup window for K.P., Washroom, Shower, and Last Day Clean Up, as well as optional sign ups for helping with Food Prep. and the World Accord Breakfast.
How will you protect your precious neighbour that sits beside you at Reunion? This personal responsibility may look like:

M. Doreen Campbell
1927 – 2022
It is with deep sadness that we must say goodbye for now, to our precious Mom. She slipped away on Wednesday, May 25 at Fergus GMCH in the arms of her loved ones. She has gone to join the love of her life, our father, Willis (1999). Forever cherished by their five children: Larry (2020) & Wendy,
Nadine & Gary, Darryl & Bonnie, Cheryl & Dean, and Alita.
She also leaves behind 8 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren. Mom’s favourite times were spent with her family. Our parents were amazing role models, both being active in their local community and in Community of Christ. Mom has been a good and faithful servant and will continue to be in the hearts of those who knew her.
We shall never forget the numerous acts of kindness from so many that played a role in her life, some for a long time and others only briefly. We shall also be forever grateful to the doctors and nursing staff at the hospital. To all of them we say thank you.
We will miss our dear sweet mother more than words can ever convey.
A private family gathering to honour Doreen’s life will take place in the near future, after which, she will be laid to rest beside our father at Belsyde Cemetery in Fergus, Ontario.
