After a respite in August, the Jubilee Market Fundraiser was back in full force once more this past weekend with 19 booths, with several new vendors joining us. Many visitors began their holiday shopping as the sun shone brightly on the last market bbq for the year. Thank you to everyone who donated baked goods, plants and paintings. Thanks to Bri-anne for the donation of cd’s of her music. Thanks especially to the 34 volunteers who gave of their time to work at the Jubilee booths.
Another market has come and gone.
Thanks to all the volunteers who worked at the booth tables. Your efforts enabled us to continue to raise needed funds for the ministries of Jubilee.
Thanks especially to the folks who stepped up to take on additional responsibilities behind the scenes. It is much appreciated!
Thanks also to everyone who came to shop. Both new and returning vendors and volunteers all appreciate seeing and speaking with you.
It looks like the rest of the summer is busy for everyone. The August market has been cancelled due to a shortage of vendors. But never fear: we’ll be back in force in September!
Vendors: The fall markets are filling up quickly, with November being completely booked already! There are a few spaces left for the rest of the fall months, so get your applications in.
As of July 3rd, indoor activities at Jubilee United Church are “Masks Optional”
We continue to support those who wish to be masked
and maintain distance from others, but will not longer require it of all people.
We are confident that we be able to respect each other
as we emerge into this new phase of pandemic together.
Our first summer market on June 11 welcomed first-time as well as seasoned vendors. It was a really terrific variety of both products and services. The BBQ was located on the labyrinth and offered a relaxing, enjoyable environment in which to grab a bite of a burger or hotdog, despite the threatening clouds.
We will continue to hold the markets on the second Saturday of the month. It’s not too early to start your holiday shopping. Each month we’ll be joined by some new and some returning vendors. Click HERE to see a listing of all the vendors registered so far for all the markets. You’ll also find the products each has to offer. VENDORS: The fall is already nearly completely booked, so don’t delay if you’re interested. We do require that products and services are NOT available in stores.
It is with sadness that the family announce the peaceful passing of their mother Kay (Kathleen) on Thursday, May 5, 2022 in her 99th year. She was predeceased by Don, her loving husband of 66 years. She leaves to mourn her children and grandchildren Mark and Denise Brundage (Cole), Michael and Kristy Brundage (Harry, Carter (Caitlin Farquharson), Anna and Emmett), Anne and Terry Pruner (Lauren (Oscar Alba), Brendan, and Cameron).
Kay grew up in Alberta, and while still in her teens achieved the Toronto Conservatory A.R.T.C. in piano performance. She later acquired double degrees from the University of Alberta, and in mid-life, the Business Administration degree at Ryerson College. For 50 years she was an active member of the United Church Women, PEO Chapter B, and the University Women’s Club of North York.
While at the University of Alberta she was privileged to be the first accompanist of the newly-formed University of Alberta Mixed Chorus, where she met Don. They returned many times for anniversaries, along with three life-long friends (also “originals” from the Chorus). Kay attended the 73rd annual concert in 2016. She and Don treasured the more than 60 years they sang together in church choirs in Calgary and Don Mills.
Kay was an enthusiastic swimmer and skater, writer of letters and emails and a voracious reader of books and newspapers. She enjoyed a lively discussion, as well as using her musical talents playing for soloists and various choirs. She enjoyed camping and travel, and sharing her home and cottage with family and friends, always with warmth and laughter. She was a cottager on Skootamatta Lake since 1979 and was a resident of the lake for the last 18 months of her life at Skootaway the home of Mark, Denise and Cole.
Heartfelt thanks to the compassionate doctors and nurses at the Lennox and Addington Country General Hospital Palliative Care Unit for their excellent care in Kay’s final days.
A small family celebration will take place at a later date in her beloved Land O’ Lakes area.
If you would like to make a donation in Kay’s memory please consider the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Lennox & Addington County General Hospital Foundation – Inpatient Services.
Thanks Mom for everything. You will never be forgotten.
Kay’s love of family and her sense of greater good will live on.
Jubilee held its second market on the sunny Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend. In addition to the Jubilee tables (Baked Goods, Plants, Information / Silent Auction, and Refreshments), we welcomed 13 vendors, six of whom were returning.
Click HERE to see a listing of all the vendors registered so far for all the markets. You’ll also find the products each has to offer. The fall is already nearly completely booked with vendors!
We made a few changes since our inaugural market. A new floor plan was needed to accommodate the large number of vendors, and the flow worked well. Our Refreshments menu saw the addition of barbeque items. Paintings were swapped out for plants, but will return at a later date.
Join us on June 11 for the first of our summer offerings!
The inaugural Jubilee Market was held on Saturday, April 9, to great acclaim. This recurring market is an opportunity for independent vendors to get back into the community after being so restricted by the pandemic for longer than two years. Fifteen vendors, including five in direct support of Jubilee United Church, shared their wares, which included skincare products, jewelry, quilts and blankets, paintings, pine art, greeting cards, baked goods, and a silent auction. COVID masking and distancing protocols were in place. Thanks to the vendors, the shoppers, and the volunteers.
Each month, we will welcome some returning vendors and say hello to some new vendors.
Join us for our next market event on Saturday, May 7, from 10am – 4pm!
