The congregation was blessed today with a surprise Birthday party celebrating one of our longest serving members, Jim Whittington. The surprise was orchestrated by Jim’s wife Dianne who contracted Jeremy Smith to play a surprise concert. Privacy and ethical concerns prevent me from disclosing the age of our Birthday Boy. Suffice to say, he is a younger man than I.
The Orange Owls from a nearby daycare made their annual pilgrimage to the Manor and Highland Park Cenotaph. It was a heartwarming experience for the remembrance committee secretary and chairman to interact with these innocent, beautiful 2 and 3 year olds and their teacher Julie. Once again the Orange Owls have touched us by leaving some Remembrance Day art work now on display in the Church.
Well, the concert is over and it was great. Jeremy Smith not only sings like John Denver, he looks like John Denver. For all you John Denver fans out there not attending today, you missed a great show. Stay tuned though. We may have him back.
On Friday March first we celebrated the women of Slovenia with Westmount Presbyterian, Westview Baptist, St. John The Devine (RC), and Mount Zion United. The service was put together and run capably by our own Judy Caley. Thanks Judy.
The winner of this years Quilt was Bruce Jackson. Bruce says he’s always cold when he gets to the church on Sunday Mornings, so he will leave the quilt here. He will use it to warm up before the service.
The We Will Remember concert Sunday November 11 2018 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
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 still be made to Church of the Epiphany Memorial Fund – Afghanistan.
