New Student Dinner Thank You

Sabbath dinner under the trees—it doesn’t get any better than what we enjoyed last weekend at our new student welcome dinner. We thank all the 75 families who provided a home-cooked meal for our nearly 750 diners at tables spread between Pioneer and the theological seminary. The gratitude from the new (and returning) students was enthusiastic. The weather was picture perfect. And the planning and preparation were well executed—thanks to the leadership of Ben Chilson and Gerre St. Clair and their team members. Those who are asking if we could do this every week might be onto something! Blessings to all whose hard work made the dinner possible.

Turns out Pugwash is a small town in Nova Scotia, on the far eastern side of Canada and perched on the red clay shores of the Northumberland Strait. Its more famous neighbor across the strait is Prince Edward Island, the home of the fabled “Anne of Green Gables” (that’s “Anne with an e”)—Lucy Maud Montgomery’s heart-tugging story of a spunky red-headed orphan who for a century now has captured the hearts of women young and old (and, not a few men as well)   . . .read more
