On Sunday 22 May 2005, former Summerlea member Heather (Maxwell) Fedele, husband
Derrick and sons Ryan and
Michael visited their Lachine stomping grounds to celebrate the 75th birthday of Derrick's mother
Pauline. They took the opportunity to bring with them a Peace Candle for Summerlea from
Northwood United Church in their current home of Surrey, BC.|
They arrived at Summerlea during coffee hour after the service and presented the candle to Summerlea minister Howard Clark. Howard took the opportunity to make a brief ceremony in the sanctuary, with Heather's parents Frank and Judy Maxwell of Wolfville, N.S., also former Summerlea members, looking on.
The Candle will be presented to the Summerlea congregation officially next Sunday.
