The Lutheran-United Church, like many homes and buildings in Thompson, received some damage to their building from ice damming this past spring. As the eavestroughs were torn down by the weight of the ice and had to be replaced, an "eavestrough raising" was recently held under the direction of Blair Cormier of Can-Do Plumbing of Thompson. A group of volunteers were gathered to raise a length of continuous eavestrough in a synchronized manner so as to prevent bending. It was a successful endeavour and Blair claims it was the longest continuous eavestrough in Thompson at just over 102 feet!
Due to interior damage from the ice damming as well as the current pandemic, the Lutheran-United Church has been offering weekly emailed worship materials with music. An outdoor, socially distanced communion service as well as several lunch-on-the-lawn events have been held throughout the summer as weather permitted. If you would like to be included on our email list to receive materials and keep up with our news, please email the church at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 204-677-4495. All are welcome!
