Joe Bowman

Joe Bowman was a long time parishioner at the Church of the Epiphany. He was known in the area as the Mayor of Manor Park. He owned a Variety Store on the corner of Wharncliffe Rd and Emery St. Joe was a very generous man. If someone needed food, but couldn't afford to pay just then - no problem. Joe would give him what he needed. In reality Joe was the first food bank in the area, long before our church food bank. Joe was also a decorated war veteran. He was instrumental in forming the Manor and Highland Park War Restoration Committee when the cenotaph was vandalized beyond repair and had to be replaced. Back in 2011 Adam, Teresa's son Adam interviewed Joe for a school project. Here is an audio file of that interview.

We Will Remember

The We Will Remember concert Sunday November 11 was a great success. A huge thank you to Stephen for all his work putting on the concert. As anyone there will tell you it was simply amazing. There were historical newspaper reports, beautiful music, great vocals featuring Paul Grambo and Katie Clarke, an historical piece written by Adam featuring Elsie Perrin Williams and her husband. It was a fantastic show and it raised almost $1700. Thank you very much to Stephen and crew.

The morning before the concert I met John who had come by to pay his respects at our cenotaph. John is a radio host at CHRW and when he learned about our upcoming concert suggested that he could record it and play it on the radio.

John showed up with all his gear and recorded the We Will Remember concert

Here is the link to the podcast.

Thank you also to John for putting the concert over the airwaves and providing us with this podcast.    Thank you John!!!

Afghanistan Project

The Manor and Highland Park Cenotaph sits on church property at the corner of Holborn Ave and Briscoe St. This year the committee overseeing the Cenotaph has upgraded the monument with an Afghanistan Memorial tribute. The WW1 soldier was lifted off the monument. The old granite base was removed and then replaced with a new larger granite block. The new block was inscribed with the following:

The official unveiling has taken place during our Service of Dedication October 27, 2018. Donations to this memorial project may be made to Church of the Epiphany Memorial Fund - Afghanistan.

Please watch the You Tube video.

 

Thank you!!
