We define our CLASSICS as those who have reached the age of 80. In 2018, we have just over 120! We are proud of them and each year in early May, we honour them with a “Birthday Party” which includes a dinner and entertainment. All members of the congregation are encouraged to join in the celebrations. All Classics are personally invited and offered a ride if needed.
The party starts on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in the Lower Hall and is usually finished by 7:00 p.m. Entertainment, a singsong and of course a meal, catered by our catering team, make for a great party. Besides it is a chance for these “friends for life” to see each other again, not always possible for those with mobility challenges. Members of the congregation make a special effort to help them attend. Everyone is welcome.
This event is jointly sponsored by the U.C.W and the Catering Team.
“The concept of honouring our Classics began in 1962 with the Senior Friends Program in U.C.W. Unit 7.”
Pictures are a necessary part of the memories and what follows is
a portfolio our classics since 2002.
