Bishops’ Friends dinner at Huron-Perth

Huron and Perth Deanery second Bishops’ Friends dinner held on April 27 at Mitchell Golf & Country Club was a complete success. The exceptional attendance of people willing to support The Empowered Leadership Fund and a relaxed atmosphere turned this event into an enjoyable evening. The gifts from the silent auction exceeded $1,000.00.

Bishops’ Friends in Mitchell were welcomed by Stephanie Donaldson and Lynda McGregor. Gail Trewhitt was the Master of Ceremony and Bishop Bob Bennett was introduced by Ven. Allan Livingstone. The singer/songwriter Ali Matthews, accompanied by the guitarist Andrew Horrocks provided outstanding entertainment. Opening and closing prayers were offered by Rev. Wayne Malott and Rev. Dan Bowyer.





“It will be difficult to top our initial effort”, said the organizers after the last year’s Bishops’ Friends dinner at the Huron-Perth Deanery. But they did it!
