From FEARS to TEARS to HOPE. That’s the name of the event being held tonight at St. Andrew’s United Church in Renfrew. Town Councillor Tom Sidney will be the speaker of the evening, and he says it’s all about how he pulled himself out of a very dark place after suffering a spinal injury.
Sidney says he had to practice what he had preached for years. He adds that the injury was life changing, but he’s turning it into something he can use to try and help other people. Admission into the motivational speech is either a non-perishable food donation or a monetary donation to the Renfrew and Area Food Bank. Sidney will start talking at 7 p.m.
