Gratitude Luncheon for Rev. Tricia

Following an inspirational service with the theme “On Flows the River” for her final service as Interim Minister on June 9, Rev. Tricia was feted at a farewell luncheon and program in the Parish Hall.

Heartfelt remarks from Richard Kellaway, Eleanor Grady, Myles Crowley, Samantha Tan, and Julie Thompson recounted the effects on them and the congregation of Tricia’s three and one-half year service as Interim Minister.

All enjoyed a catered luncheon from Pat’s Italian Restaurant. We gathered to eat around our new round tables which held beautiful floral arrangements by Noel Currier — those lucky ones with a penny under their seat got to take them home!

Gratitude Book for Tricia
If you have not already had the chance, there is still time to add your Orgratitude page  to the book being compiled for Tricia. Please see Marcia Hubelbank in the next 2 Sundays for the special paper being used for this purpose.  The book will  also contain the testimonials from the luncheon,  a copy of her last sermon and OOS, many of Robert’s wonderful photographs of the congregation, and a few other mementos.  The book will be all the more memorable for Tricia to include our many pages of gratitude!

Or you can send to Kit Binns at and he will pass them along to Marcia — or you can put in her box in the office.
