Lake-wide 'Celebration of Lives Lived' Memorial Service Goes Well Under New Leadership, Return from Covid19
This year's Service was liturgically and sermonically planned and officiated by the Rev. Larry Beman who picked up the torch for Rev. Franklin. The statistician and presenter for those being memorialized was conducted by Suzanne Bristow who picked up the torch for Joan Maddison, wife of the late Ray Maddison.
Presenter of the family gifts of LED candles and flowers were distributed by Kathy Schaefer during the reading of the Bio's. From the balcony, the Rev. Don Weaver rang the Shulmerich hand bell on loan from First United Methodist Church of Perry as each name was read.
Bill Schaefer kept things running smoothly by handling the Sunday morning logistics, and assisting and welcoming the arriving families and guests. Julia Hoffner was at the Epworth Hall keyboard, continuing her run of service for the 52nd year.
