This autumn “Fowl Supper” was in celebration of the congregation’s decision and follow-through on a housing project, with a majority of H.O.P. units to help with home ownership in the downtown core, and to especially celebrate the “429 team of key leaders”.
The celebration of the “Vision 429” ministry on Saturday, October 24, at 5 pm was enjoyed by all! With a glass of punch or iced tea in hand, guests listened to wonderful jazz music.
Marg Waldon walked us through a Timeline of the changes that have occurred in the life of our church at 421 St. Paul while Patricia McColl projected historical photos on the overhead screens. Maia Walker painted three canvasses which artistically symbolized the church’s journey through time.
Stories (generic) were told about the appreciation felt by many of the new homeowners who have purchased homes at 429. The six “Key” people in steering 421 and 429 were presented with symbolic keys by Rev. Bruce Comrie; Jennifer Keim, Mary Ann Milobar, Ron Routledge, Ray Sewell, Rose Soneff, and Don Waldon have spent countless hours in making our dream of renovating our church and building housing (majority of which are part of the H.O.P.) happen. The whole congregation was also thanked for taking on this gigantic project!
A delicious turkey dinner with all the fixings was prepared for us by Bill White and his team. Presentations of appreciation were given to Rose and Ken Soneff and Phyllis Boswell and Ruby MacLeod.
