St. Valentine's Day Open House at the Conservatory


In celebration of their new evening hours. I didn't stay that long, as it was rather crowded.

Shelter House Volunteer Appreciation: Feb. 12/15


At some point in the mid 80's Dorion Bible Camp began taking monthly turns cooking for Shelter House. After a while, we began to supplement our team with people from our church (Northwood Park Church of Christ). Eventually, (c. 1989) we took over DBC's turn. Even though our congregation ceased operations in the Fall of 2012, we continued with our monthly stint until June 2014! At that point we felt we needed to retire.

So at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Supper we were presented this picture in honour of our 25 years of service there.
