Dixville Home celebrates 55th year
On Sunday April 7, 2013 at St. Paul’s Chapel in Dixville, Quebec, a group of 18 people gathered to celebrate the Lord’s Day and the 55th anniversary of the founding of Dixville Home. The service of prayers and songs was led by the Rev. Barbara Wintle, accompanied by organist June Patterson. The gathering included Gerritt van der Mark, co-founder of Dixville Home, residents and care-givers, and several retired staff and friends. The enjoyable half-hour began and ended with Gerritt ringing the chapel bell. Happy Anniversary Dixville Home!
