Swiss Chalet ReceiptsThe Swiss Chalet will continue to donate to Trinity 10% of the amount you spend in their restaurant.  We need the table receipts (not your credit card receipt)  and it can be placed in the containers in the narthex or the McIntyre hallway.   If they are put in the church mail box they will be looked after.  They must be from the North Bay restaurant and it is eat in only.  Any alcohol orders will not be eligible so they will be subtracted from your bill when they are submitted back to the restaurant.  Thank you,  We appreciate Swiss Chalet’s generosity.
