Summerlea One Hundred Mile Lunch 2010
Posted 15 Mar, 2010
Summerlea's 2010 One Hundred Mile (160 km) Lunch took place after church on Sunday, March 14, 2010. The lunch was sponsored by the Outreach committee to emphasize the possibility of eating food grown locally (within 160 km) in order to minimize the fuel needed to transport the food.

The lunch consisted of soup made from potatoes, carrots, turnips and other root vegetables from the local area, local cheese and bread, apples and oatmeal cookies for dessert.

The lunch also featured an introduction to the Canadian Landmine Foundation, with a video presentation describing the work of this organization which was put into place in 1995 by Lloyd Axworthy in the incredibly short time span of fourteen months, with many countries signed on.

Sinclair Harris introduced the video, and we took a few screen shots.

Rev. Heather MacDougall thanked the Outreach committee for preparing the event,
which introduced an organization that most of us have heard of but knew little.

As we were leaving we spotted an indicator that
one of our younger members was still with us.

Thanks to the Outreach committee for reminding us of our ecological responsibilities
and for introducing us to the landmines problem.
