After a long long winter, the promise of being outdoors again
is very exciting … especially when we look forward
to some exciting upcoming events from the
Friends of Beaverdams Church!
• First up is the the Ontario Heritage Conference Niagara 2015 in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake on Friday May 1, when vice president Melanie Battell and consulting engineer Mark Shoalts will discuss the rich historical legacy of the site and consider forthcoming projects and fundraising strategies. Member-at-large David Griffiths and model maker Alan Daniels will showcase the model at this important annual heritage meeting sponsored by the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario and Community Heritage Ontario/Patrimoine communitaire de l’Ontario
• Come and see the model again and chat with various Friends at the 37th Annual Arts and Craft Sale that’s being held at the Thorold Arena on May 9 from 10 to 4.
• Whatever you do, you won’t want to miss the weekend of June 6 and 7 for two exceptional events:
– on June 6, a benefit concert by NYC’s Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church organist Dr. Andrew Henderson at St Andrew’s Church in Thorold, with proceeds going to the restoration fund; and
– on June 7, the 183rd annual dedication church service officiated by Rev George Addison of Trinity United Thorold held on the church grounds
• Finally: the 3rd annual Beaverdams Church yard sale is a week later: June 13 (rain date: June 20). This year, you can expect even more village participation with several other sales being scheduled for that day. If you have items to donate, please contact Donna at 905 227 7556 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mark these dates on your calendar!
And, do remember to join us at the monthly meeting
on April 29 at 7 p.m. at Trinity United in Thorold.
