Celebrating the past … and looking to the future

Beaverdams Church hosted nearly 90 people on June 1st for the annual dedication service and to celebrate  the memory of one of its most cherished and dedicated friends, Esther Summers (1913–2013).

The Rev. George Addison of Trinity United, Friends of Beaverdams Church president Dave Cowan and Mayholme Foundation director Corlene Taylor all spoke with great fondness of Esther and her remarkable legacy both within the Beaverdams and Thorold community – and more widely for her invaluable genealogical and archival work.

We also look forward to Saturday June 14 when the Friends of Beaverdams Church will host the 2nd annual yard sale on the church premises. In addition to generous donations from the community, eight independent vendors will also be selling their wares — as will various “Beaverdamers” throughout the village.

We also look forward to the stabilization work on the foundation that will be completed by heritage engineer Mark Shoalts in the next few weeks.

Please come out and show your support!
