As then, so too today

In keeping with the theme of resurrecting archival material pertaining to the restoration of Beaverdams Church, this recently emerged: an agreement between the church trustees and various neighbours to commit funds for its upkeep.

1923 request for volunteers

We read that the trustees desired “to keep the church and grave yard in a fair state of repair”. This was only possible through “voluntary subscriptions”.

Like today, their intention was modest: the re-shingling of the roof and building a new fence.

And as it was more than 90 years ago, so too it is today: volunteer support is the only way to ensure this magnificent historic gem will be restored.
