June 7: Hickson
The weather could not have been any better for this unique milestone event – the 175th anniversary of Christ Church Huntingford. That makes the church older than Canada itself!
The event was held at the Lions Club pavilion in Hickson with lunch provided by the event committee. Following the mandatory speeches, including an appearance of (local celebrity) Rev. Huntingord himself (visible in the lower left picture above), Ontario PC incumbent Ernie Hardeman, and MP Dave MacKenzie.
Much of the entertainment was provided by very talented church members and wrapped up with an appearance by The Party Magician himself who had the audience in stitches just minutes into the program. The congregation must be very generous when the plate is passed because all I could get was the loan of a $5 bill!
