Memories from 1997
The 11 pastors who participated in the Opening Communion Worship Service at the 1997 LWMLC convention at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Ottawa. Also displayed in the picture is the cross that was a gift from the members of the Laurentian District and is the workmanship of Mr. Caron Howse.

Flaming dessert at the convention banquet. The stage was set, suddenly all the lights went low, and the waiters paraded in carrying the flaming Baked Alaska dessert. It was a sight to behold.
Volunteer Tapestry crew packing the latest issue of Tapestry to be shipped across Canada and overseas. They met every three months at Holy Cross Lutheran in Saskatoon, counting and stuffing envelopes so our LWMLC members could get their issues on time.
The crew relaxing and enjoying the fruits of their labour: donuts, coffee and fellowship.
