    "During the Advent season we can think of joy.  The joy of Christ's birth and of His daily blessings. Our church and community has been blessed with a special kind of joy. Helen Rombaut is spreading joy at the age of 97! She is the oldest member of our church-who is an awesome person.  For many years she was the church organist. Today she tries to play once a month depending on the condition of her eye sight. For many years she has made beautiful, colorful hats, slipper socks and mittens to be given away at this time of year for those less fortunate. She receives joy from knitting and she gives joy to warm hands, heads and hearts. This year she made fifty pair of mittens. Conesus United Church thanks God for His grace pouring forth from Helen Rombaut's acts of love and kindness. Thanks you Helen Rombaut, you continue to be an inspiration for us all!"

    Lee Prong, Conesus United Church
