Sunday afternoon's picnic at Crieff Hills was a wonderful celebration of new friendships!
Several congregations in the Presbytery of Hamilton welcomed a wonderful family from Syria, along with the help of another gracious family who arrived in Canada from Syria just over a year ago.
Both families planted Canadian maple trees at Crieff to symbolize the new roots they are putting down in Canada. The young children especially loved shoveling the dirt around the trees!
When asked what he liked about Canada, one of the children replied "I like that we can play anywhere safely."
