A super lunch party after the 10.30 service to celebrate Canon Alex’s 70th birthday and to bid our farewells to him and to Geraldine.
The hall was packed, the tables laden with goodies and the TWO cakes were enormous. Fred’s speech was tear jerking – not just for him but the audience as well!
Canon Alex was presented with a Swiss Army Knife and Geraldine with a fondue set – we can’t let them forget their time here in Geneva. They will also have a tree for their garden in Scotland and a subscription to an online library. There is also a book available for the congregation to add personal messages.
It is not Canon Alex’s last service so don’t panic if you couldn’t make it and please do take a minute to write in the book.
