Mellor Mothers' Union 90th Anniversary June 2009

A service of celebration was taken by the Rev.Dr. John Darch.
This was  followed by refreshments in the narthex, and cutting of the Anniversary cake by the oldest members present. Mrs. Marjorie Knight and Mrs. Mary Hill.
Entertainment organised by Mrs Rita Gorman, Mrs Margaret Baldwin and committee members followed this.
Mrs Rita Gorman read out passages from the Church Magazines written over the last 90 years. This was interspered with songs from different decades and ended with an anthem "Our M.U." written by the late Margaret King and augmented by Rita.
Members enjoyed looking and reminising about the photographic display of past M.U. activities.
Over 70 members took home a small plant and bookmark as a memento of this special evening.
