Thanks to Flatbread for fundraiser

To the editor:

The Market Street Baptist Church would like to thank Shannon Hamilton and the staff of Flatbread Amesbury for the opportunity to raise funds for our Canada Mission Trip at Flatbread on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

For the last four years a team of church members volunteers to travel to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, to work with Pastor Ian MacFarlane and the Living Hope Community Church for a week helping with children’s programs like Vacation Bible School and Bible Basketball.

The Canadian church’s volunteers come to Amesbury also to help with similar programs. Both churches have made a supportive bond with each other from these trips and keep in touch all year by phone and Internet.

We feel strongly about this project and appreciate any help to raise money toward the traveling expenses.

Thank you, Flatbread, for your generosity to the community.

Dianne Dostie Cole

Church secretary and Canada trip participant
