Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier North Hat­ley


June 8th at 10 a.m., a spe­cial ser­vice will be held at St. Ge­orge’s Angli­can Church, in Ayer’s Cliff at 1002 Main Street, to cel­e­brate the church’s first one hun­dred years. Rev­erend Bar­bara Win­tle will be the Cel­e­brant and Bishop Den­nis Drainville will be the guest speaker. Also in at­ten­dance will be mem­bers of the Dioce­san ACW which will con­clude this year’s Bi­en­nial. His­tory book­lets about the church have been pre­pared and will be for sale for a small fee at the event.

“Nor­man and I have been mem­bers of the church for fifty-four years. We joined right af­ter we were mar­ried. I’m quite ex­cited about this an­niver­sary; I ac­tu­ally still have the leaflet when the church’s 50th an­niver­sary was cel­e­brated,” said Rev­erend Win­tle.

The ser­vice will be fol­lowed by a brunch held at Beu­lah United Church Hall, also on Main Street. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to both the spe­cial an­niver­sary ser­vice and the brunch.
