What a terrific turnout we had for the Knox tour and tea this past Sunday July 28th.
First, a big thank you to all of those who helped out with the event including Chuck, Glenn, Audrey, Marjorie, Doreen, Vi, Ed, Keith, Ellen, Karen, Elizabeth, Gladys, Madelaine, James, Michael, and those of you whose names I don’t know.
You’d think it was the 1920’s when you saw the scene from across the street.
Visitors were greeted by five antique cars, complete with fancy hood ornaments.
Chuck gave us a lesson on the history of the Knox church building. It was neat to learn about everything from the architecture to the bricks and how the pews and woodwork were ordered out of a catalogue. It’s hard to imagine that a structure so large, only took a year to build.
Glenn then told us about the organ’s features, he blew into a few pipes and then played us some organ selections so we could hear the range.
Thank you to all our visitors! Come again soon.
Have a look at this slideshow of photos.
The music is from Glenn’s organ playing during the tour. It may be a little heavy for the photos, but I wanted you to have a lasting reminder of the day.
