    Garden Crest History Help
    The family of a former member of Garden Crest reached out to the Presbytery last week requesting help tracking down an item they had donated to the church.  Anyone with knowledge of this should contact the Stated Clerk by replying to this email.  Thanks!

    Here’s the message:
    My grandmother, Elsie Tomasko, was a member at Garden Crest. When she died at aged 98, my mother, Arlene T. Samuel, donated in 2003 a crocheted (or possibly tatted) Lord’s Supper that my grandmother had made. It was a very large piece of work, maybe 5′ X 3′, was framed, and had a little gold plaque with my grandmother’s name on it. My mother, who is now 92, has been worrying about what happened to the Lord’s Supper since Garden Crest isn’t at the 9th Avenue North location any longer. Please know that we understand that this was a gift for the church to do with as it sees fit. If you do still have it, though, or know where it ended up, it would be great to know so that we could ease our mother’s mind.
