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.
