It was a joyful occasion when the ACW of Corner Brook’s Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist was once again able to serve their ever popular Saturday touton brunch, a fundraiser for the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). After a COVID-19 hiatus (since 2019), the women donned their ACW aprons, which were donated by the late Sterling Randell, and served toutons, baked beans, fried bologna, and sausages (not to mention juice, and tea or coffee), for only $15.00 per person. The March 18th event raised just over $1700 for PWRDF, well above the $1300 that previous touton brunches had raised.

The Cathedral’s ACW—Sybil Piercey, Muriel Randell, Connie Lamswood, Marsha Keeping, Norma House, Mona Carey, Sheila Crocker, Effie Humber, and Katie Watton; they are shown as they served a meal for the National ACW Presidents’ and Vice Presidents’ Conference, September 29, 2022.
