Stamps for Leprosy
Many years ago Terry McClintock started collecting used stamps for Leprosy Mission Canada. Some ladies of the church have decided to carry on with this project. We have just received a letter thanking us for the last submission saying that they hope to get enough this year to provide a cure and care for 40 leprosy patients. Please keep saving your stamps. Should you have postcards or entire envelopes dated prior to 1950, kindly send them without removing the stamps as they are greatly sought after by many collectors. Thank you.

The Compass Growers – Share your Harvest
Attention all gardeners! Would you like to further support the Compass this season by growing an extra row of vegetables or donating extra produce? The Compass grows food in several plots in the Hillside Community Garden that supplement our food bank operation. We are looking to you to help increase the amount of nutritious, fresh produce that we can distribute to our clients.
Whether your vegetable garden is large or small, consider adding an additional row, bed, pot or plant. If you have extra fruit or vegetables, earmark them for donation to the Compass. The more Compass Growers we have, the more fresh produce we can distribute. Please consider sharing this with any friends or family members who you think may be interested too.
Visit our web site (www.thecompass.ca) for further details or if you have any questions,
please contact the Compass office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-
