Vermilion First United Church’s Fall Supper Fosters Community Spirit
In honour of togetherness, the Vermilion First United Church hosted its annual fall fundraising supper on October 25. The event brought together residents for an evening of scrumptious cuisine, music, and fellowship at the church’s hall.
More than just a fundraiser, this supper served a dual purpose by extending a warm and welcoming hand to the broader community while also offering an introduction to their new minister, Rev. Carolyn Woodall.
The event was a resounding success, with tickets selling out and a full house of 60 guests in attendance. The atmosphere was filled with laughter and conversation as attendees savored the sumptuous roast beef, complete with all the trimmings and mouthwatering desserts. It was a feast for the senses and the soul, reminding everyone of the power of communal gatherings.
The evening’s entertainment was another highlight, thanks to the talented contributions of Vermilion First United Church’s very own organist, Glen Teasdale. His melodic tunes provided a soul-soothing backdrop to the festivities.
Moreover, the event showcased the remarkable talents of a local high school student, Cassie Cameron, who wooed the crowd with her guitar playing and captivating vocals. Her performance also underscored the depth of talent present in Vermilion.
As the plates were cleared and the evening drew to a close, it was evident that the Vermilion First United Church’s fall supper had achieved its goal. Not only did attendees depart with full bellies and happy hearts, but they also carried with them a sense of community, fellowship.
