Congratulations to Danbys Restaurant

Danbys Restaurant in the Munster Plaza is celebrating 10 years with and serving us.  We thank you for everything you have done in our community; the support you have given area organizations, groups, and teams; and serving great food.  For anyone who doesn’t know, a number of members of the Munster United Church drop into Danbys for breakfast following the service of worship.

 

 

Thank You to Bonny at Mac’s Milk

As most people know Mac’s Milk is closing the store here in Munster.  For pretty much everyone it will be missed and especially for a number of people, it will be really missed when starting to prepare a meal and find they have run out of something.  It will take a while for us to accept and realize what is about to happen next week.

Around 9:30 am Friday, 28 April several people gathered to drop in at Munster’s Mac’s Milk to express the thanks of the Munster Community to Bonny.  To show how much we appreciate all Bonny and Mac’s Milk has done to support our community, three plants were presented to Bonny.  Hugs accompanied the plants.  It was a sad moment but in it Munster expressed their thanks to several dedicated people.

Mac's Milk in transition - a sad sight and thought for Munsterites. Certainly not the way we remember the fully stocked shelves. The absence of Mac's Milk in Munster will take time to sink in but will be known right away for a fair number of people in need of something

Indoor Walking

Munster Elementary School gymnasium

The MCA has arranged for the gymnasium in Munster Elementary School to be available three days a week for adult walking.  Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 to 10:30 am you’ll find adults walking around the gym.  Indoor shoes are required.  Holidays and other days when the school will be closed, the gym won’t be available.
A reminder that the school is closed on holidays and PD days.  We will endeavour to contact all walkers should some other event or occasion take place that makes the school gym unavailable.  Please ensure our walking coordinator has your email address and phone number.

     – Good Friday – 30 March
     – Easter Monday – 2 April

 

Skating Rinks

We are very fortunate to have two outdoor skating rink pads for the enjoyment of everyone.  It is operated and maintained by the MCA.  To keep the rink in fine form it requires volunteer time for flooding, shovelling, and maintaining the change room.  If you, your family, you and your neighbours enjoy the rink or would like to see others enjoying the rink, please consider getting together to form a crew or help out people on several occasions.  It only takes a few hours one night a week if there are enough volunteers.  If you aren’t interested in the outdoor work yet still have some time to offer, consider the time to close the change room in the evening.  To offer some time, contact anyone on the MCA Executive.
