Coldest Night of the Year. Ian is willing to lead if the event is virtual, Janice will lead if it is in person.
Omicron: The government is reacting in a precipitous manner and we will need to be responsive to the changes. Discussion around holding regular and special services took place with the decision to suspend discussion until there is further guidance from the government. Allan, Linda and Ian will meet on Monday to examine our options.
Accident Reports: Question arose as to whether or not we require accident reports. There is a potential hazard around the platforms at the front, the steps cannot be distinguished from the wood. There needs to be tape laid to identify them. Mary will help Allan to put down the tape this week.
AGM: The AGM should be held once again in March. Reports will need to be sent into the office. A full slate of nominees to fill the officer positions of Treasurer, Vice Chair and Secretary will be required.
Rev. Linda closed the meeting with prayer.
