The Columbarium Dedication Day was held on May 31st, 2009 with over 150 in attendance. This project started over three years ago and because of the devoted efforts of the committee, this day was a complete success. God blessed us with a beautiful sunny day and made his presence known with some strong gusts of wind during the ceremony. Dr. Bob Gram and Rev Stickley lead the service with litany, readings and joyous song. The area was officially named "StickleyGardens” in honor of Rev and Esther’s thirty-plus years of devotion to our church. The families of Doc & Flo Harder and Stephan Nekos both were in attendance and we all celebrated the memories of these wonderful people. The donation of memorial funds by these families made this project possible and we thank them dearly. Also honored was Matt Sirni for his donation of labor and ongoing advice and expertise in construction, lighting and fountain installation.
The Columbarium is dedicated to serving many families who find this their final resting place. May all who come here, discover the dignity of God’s love, and a place of peace and rest, in the tranquility of their surroundings.
