Community Halloween Party

Last Year’s fun and frightening Halloween Party was a huge success. Your Christian Development committee is getting ready to organize this year’s Spooktacular on Saturday, October 19 fro 5:00 – 7:00 pm. There will be crafts, games, pumpkin carving and a Haunted Hallway. We need help with everything from distributing flyers, set-up Saturday morning, people to welcome gusts, overseeing a planned activity ( game or craft table) or serving pizza slices from the kitchen. We especially need people to help for 2 1/2 hours on Saturday. If you are willing to assist please contact Karen Forgrave or Rev Coral.

Father’s Day Cooking class – For the Kids

  

Hey Kid’s…. want to get your hands messy, discover a few kitchen tricks, have a great lunch, fun afternoon and along the way learn how to make a fabulous meal for Dad and the whole family ?

Well you can do all those things right here at St James United Church on June 9th from 12-2 PM with Chef’s Julia and Pete.

In the first of a series of cooking classes aimed at the budding Chef’s in the family, Julia and Pete will have the Junior Chef’s stuffing Cheesy GIANT meatballs, Roasting, twisting and Baking Garlic Knots, whipping up Caesar dressing and building the ultimate Cheesy meatball pasta bake for their lunch that day
….all without the use of knife.

Psst…Best if you can convince them to duplicate the dish for Father’s Day for the wholefamily to enjoy.

The activities will have a ratio of 4-1 students and there are a few rules from the Chefs to keep in mind.

  1. Please wear long pants and rubber soled, closed toe shoes.
  2. Bring one clean dishtowel with you.
  3. Let us know if there are any allergies.
  4. Be prepared to ask questions and take notes.
  5. Listen to the Chef
  6. Come Hungry and prepared to have some serious fun in the kitchen

 

Each class will offer an introduction to kitchen safety and hygiene, cooking and baking techniques, healthy eating and plenty of stories and fun facts about where our food comes from.

All the classes will be 100% hands on and in a team building environment.

Cost $20 per youth
