The St. Peter's Men's club brings together the men of the parish for monthly dinner meetings, followed by a special speaker. It also does catering for parish events such as the annual Pancake Supper. Monthly meetings are normally held on the third Thursday of each month, with occasional changes to the meeting dates to accommodate other events or Church festivals, such as Christmas. All meetings begin with Fellowship at 6:00 p.m., followed by Dinner at 6:30 p.m.
Following the results of the survey completed at the St Peter's Men's Club Dinner in October, here is the Programme which has been set up for the third Thursday of each month:
|January 2015||Rev Andrew Graham will give us a "101" on Judaism, Islam and Christianity.|
|February 2015||RBC Investments Advisor David Sorichetti will discuss how world events affect any investments.|
|March 2015||Town of Cobourg Director of Planning & Development Glenn McGlashon will explain Cobourg's proposed plans for the future.|
|April 2015||Rev. Dr. Ron Kydd will share his experiences on a recent visit to China.|
|May 2015||Peter Brotherhood will relate the interesting story of Alderville.|
|June 2015||Historian and Author Rob Mikel will recall the history of Cobourg's famous founding families.|
Thanks to those who chose the above subjects for so many informative meetings - and our thanks as well to those who so kindly agreed to donate their time as our Speakers.
Over the past 50 years the Mary and Martha group of St. Peter's ladies have probably catered, cooked and served over 500 dinners for the St. Peter's Men's group (Brotherhood of Anglican Churchmen and now the Men's Club or St. Peter's Men's Christian Fellowship). In the process they earned several thousand dollars for the church. They recently retired from this activity and were honoured at a Men's dinner in June, 2014, at which they, themselves, were served.
At the dinner, thanks to the group were given by Rod Baker and Art Joynt, both of whom have enjoyed the work of the group for very many years. Karen Peters responded on behalf of the ladies, each of whom was presented with a pewter ornament of St. Peter's.
