An Ecumenical Breakfast was held on July 1st at St. Thomas Anglican Church as part of Fall River Days celebration.  St. John’s United took part along with St. Thomas and St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. Proceeds from the breakfast which totaled $537 was donated to Georges P Vanier Junior High School Band Program to purchase instruments.  Thank you to everyone who donated eggs and also to those who volunteered their time.  Thanks Heidi Carr
