Prince Albert Tales
February 19th, following Sunday Service at Wesley United Church, the congregation gathered to celebrate the 100th birthday of Priscilla McCloy. Priscilla is a member of Wesley United and a matriarch of Colleston United Church which lies just a few kilometers east of Prince Albert. I have written about Priscilla and the Colleston Church in a previous column. She is a lady who has lived through a dramatic century of change - from horse drawn buggies to spaceships to the moon. She is a woman, like so many others of her time, who dedicated her life to her God and her country. As we in Canada prepare for the celebrations that will occur as our country recognizes its150th year, it would serve us well to pause and give tribute to the pioneers such as Priscilla that have created what we celebrate.
