Stained Glass Window Repair Drive
Window #14 is Re-dedicated
Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17, 2012 was the setting for the re-dedication of Stained Glass Window #14. It was refurbished to its original beauty in memory of Russ Wilson. Reverend Jarrett preformed a special service of re-dedication and the names were read who donated so generously to make this possible. A special plague was affixed to the windowsill stating that the window was restored in Loving Memory of Russ Wilson.
Russ was a major force in getting the window restoration project started. It was so fitting that money was raised in his memory. Blessings to each of you that helped make this project possible.
A special thanks goes out to Linda & Ray Honicker for all of their help behind the scenes.
