Celebration of long service
On Sunday 1st March Alva Parish Church celebrated the many volunteers within the congregation that make life a little better for those around them.
From informal activities such as serving teas and coffees after the service, organising flowers or being a friend in time of need, to more formal leadership roles.
Certificates were presented to Elders eligible for long service awards including:
Thomas (Gil) Harvie
John Willis (30 years)
Special thanks were given to Margaret Simpson who has clocked up a mighty half century of unbroken service as organist and choir leader in Alva. A beautiful cake was presented to Margaret in celebration of her tireless work and dedication.
