Bayview United Church members at Momiji are looking after the rose garden in the back of the Momiji building. Mainly, it is Roy Fukuzawa and Louise Nagano doing the work. Eiko Watanabe went down to take a photo of the two of them planting new rose plants with Christine Ichiyen.

.

Bayview United Church members at Momiji met for an informal gathering of stories and songs in August. It was good to see friends in person even though we have seen most everyone on Zoom each week.
