Trinity United Seniors' Service and St.David's United Church 177th Anniversary Service

Reverend Dawson and Barbara Cairns
Last night SMUG participated in the 177th Anniversary Service at St. David's United Church in Georgetown. Unfortunately the batteries ran out in the camera early in the evening and a complete record of the evening cannot be displayed. A beautiful evening service was conducted by the church minister, Barbara Cairns, and a good turnout for the special service at the historic church and a most interesting sermon by the Reverend Martin Dawson, minister of Hillcrest United Church in Montague, about how music in churches has evolved through the years. The very talented Rev. Dawson gave several demonstrations on his harmonica and dulcimer and played his concertina as the congregation sang along with him for several rousing numbers. A well attended lunch was provided in the church hall following the service. ________________ On Monday morning the Andrews Strummers attended and performed at the annual seniors' service at Trinity United Church. The Reverend John Moses conducted the service and invited all present to share in communion during the service. A wonderful lunch was served following the service which was provided and served by the pastoral care committee.
