Morgan Brothers Concert A Hugh Success
On May 3rd 2013, the Morgan Brothers accompanied by the George St. Church Men's Choir entertained the audience with some lively gosbel selections. All indications from speaking to numerous attendees were very positive and the event was very enjoyable. Serveral requests for more concerts were offered. Funds realized will go toward the church repair fund.
The anniversary Committee of George St. United Church organized a special service and volunteer's appreciation social in ther Jimmy Pratt Memorial Outreach Centre to lsalute the many volunteers that offer their time and energy freely to help provide ongoing services to the congregation and the many patrons of our outreach programming.
All volunteers were invited to join with us at 11:00 am on April 28th for a special church service in recognition of the valuable contribution. The service was conducted by Rev. Sue and followed by a networking social in the Jimmy Pratt Memorial Outreach Centre. There was a large number of attendees and certainly good food.
