Congratulations to Betty Crockett who celebrated


her 90th birthday on October 8, 2017. Betty's financial background in business was an easy transition to financial work within the church, as well as organizing fund raising events for church and community. A very special occasion for Betty was her presentation to Queen Elizabeth at a special dinner held by the Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. She was also recognized for her community service at the 150th Canada Celebration for Elgin/Middlesex/London riding association this past spring. Betty has earned our admiration and respect for her many contributions to our church and community and to the political life in this province and beyond. Congratulations Betty!
