We’ve been busy at St. Peter’s the past few weeks reaching out to our community here in Canton. Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening at St. Peter’s…..
Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper
On November 11th, we had the privilege to serve our local veterans at our Annual Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper. The evening included a raffle, 50/50 Drawing, and delicious soups and chili. All the proceeds from the 50/50 drawing were given to the family of Sgt. Douglas Riney while all other proceeds were given to the Canton VFW to help our local veterans in need. This year we were blessed to have a large portion of the food donated by Canton Hy-Vee and several raffle items were donated by WBYS, Black Maple, and American Grille. Volunteers from the local Girl Scouts, St. Peter’s, and other community members helped to make the event possible. It was a fantastic night to see our community rally together to serve those who served our country.
Lego Builders Club Rings Bells
Canton Lego Builders Club served our community by ringing bells for the Canton Salvation Army at Farm King. It was a great way to put what we have learned at LBC into practice. The Salvation Army did a volunteer highlight of the builders ringing which helped the kids see the importance of what they were doing.
St. Nicholas Day Celebration
On December 6th, we had our Annual St. Nicholas Day Celebration. The evening included a special visit from St. Nicholas who told us stories about his work and Christmas traditions, fun St. Nicholas inspired games like a penny toss, and crafts. The night was filled with joy as kids ran from station to station and enjoyed delicious treats.
