Easter Family Service 2007

The 2007 Easter family service included participation by the youth choir and accompaniment by several young musicians: Alayna Roy on flute, Keith McKenzie on bass guitar, Justin Roy on trumpet, and Peter Maklan on trombone.

Our thanks also to and Leslie Field for her guitar accompaniment and
Ann Sutton for accompanying the youth group on the piano while Connie conducted.

The service included dedication of the St. Andrew's Presbyterian stained glass windows, and after the service the window in Grace Chapel was re-dedicated. These events are recorded on the separate "stained glass" page.

And, with no fanfare, Connie played the new organ for the first time (it will be dedicated at a concert / demo at a later date).
All in all, a joyous and exciting celebration of the Resurrection.

The Easter flowers in the Chancel were placed:
In memory of loved ones, from Nancy & Huntly Bourne
In loving memory of Bob French, from Lucy, Rodger, and Wendy.
In loving memory of Nanny & Fred Cole, from Betty Cole, Sue, Kevin, Michelle, Keith & Cassandra McKenzie
In thanksgiving for my sister, from Mary and Lewis Guynan
In memory of Harry Carlisle, from Virginia and family.
