As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, the UCW will be sending hand-made cards to those who, in years past, have received Easter Lilies. The UCW wants to remind them that they are not forgotten, and hope the card is a cheery reminder of Rideau Park at this lonely and difficult time. At the bottom of this page is an example of the cards.

The UCW can now accept your donations in memory of family and friends via e-transfer. We will publish the memorial list as a special Easter Congregational e-mail.

Thank you for your continued support of our Easter memorials, remembering those we have loved and lost, and those in our congregation who can no longer be an active part of our family. A copy of the wording you wish to include must be forwarded to no later than Wednesday, March 24, 2021. Alternatively, you can call Nancy Begg-Durkee at 613-521-2051.
