Swift Current United Church building 100 year celebration, Oct. 20-21, 2012

Written by 

The First United Church congregation in Swift Current celebrated the 100th anniversary of their church building on Oct. 20 and 21. The building was constructed in the Gothic Revival architectural style and it is a designated municipal heritage property. Events during the weekend included tours of the building on Saturday afternoon that took people from the beautiful church interior to the banner room and the adjacent Metropolitan Place and Knox Hall, where they could see the small chapel and various other rooms that are used for meetings and other functions.  At 5 p.m. on Oct. 20 there was a catered supper in the gymnasium hall. The celebrations on Sunday morning included music and a presentation by guest speaker Laura Balas, a former principal of St. Andrew's College. To commemorate the celebration, Jean Pearson made a special banner for the occasion that was on display in the foyer of Metropolitan Place.
