CELEBRATING SILVER - GOING FOR THE GOLD

Congratulations to the Shepherd's Caring Friends Auxiliary on their silver anniversary celebration! It was a hugely successful fundraiser! The Cake Parade and Auction was fantastic! All monies raised will benefit the residents!

SHEPHERD’S CARING FRIENDS

Celebrating Silver!
A special anniversary!
25 years of helping others;
To the glory of God may it be!

Oh, how the years have just flown by
And what a blessing they have been!
We’ve worked, we’ve prayed in unity -
What growth and changes we have seen!

We’ve shared, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried;
Formed special bonds of friendship there!
Dedicated and faithfully we have served
The fragile and frail at Shepherd’s Care.

What funds have been raised through years of sales!
Garage sales – hard work, but also much fun -
Bake sales, cookie sales, huge craft bazaars
Countless events that with love have been done!

Serving together and seeing rewards,
Has made Caring Friends so very close-knit!
Our willing good deeds done as unto Him;
Yet our residents reaped the whole benefit.

Let’s now pass this torch of true service on,
Inviting all those whose big heart may hold
Much love for the seniors at our Shepherd’s Care!
“Celebrating Silver – Going for the Gold!”

Going for the glory of
God
Going for our precious
Old
Going with much joy and
Love
Going with hearts of
Devotion
Until our Lord and Master we behold!
