Significant Gifts

Calling Lakes Centre has recently been the recipient of several large gifts. As I think about the intentions of the people who remember the Centre in their wills or who choose to be exceptionally generous I am awed and grateful.

Esther Brandon Estate $15,000 (at least, not completely settled yet) Esther lived in Regina and worshipped at Knox-Metropolitan United Church. She was an active woman who volunteered with CUSO and worked with CIDA, before she moved to Regina to care for her mother. She was a life long learner, was active in many organizations and was always generous in her support of many charities.

Good Spirit Presbytery has chosen to gift Calling Lakes Centre with $11,000 from the sale of Camp McKay. $9,000 of that is intended for work to benefit children and youth and $2,000 to relieve debt load.

Extra Measures gift In response to the Extra Measures program through which the Stewardship Education committee is encouraging pastoral charges and congregations to give to specific projects over and above their regular Mission & Service Fund givings. An anonymous donor has given the Centre $10,000, to be used either to renovate 10 bathrooms or to buy a tractor. We have decided that the bathrooms are our most urgent priority!

Margaret Goodman estate settlement of the estate, mostly in stocks and bonds, is currently in progress. This is a substantial gift for which we are grateful. We will provide more information in the next newsletter.

THANK YOU for your generous support!
