It was a perfect day with perfect weather with everyone enjoying the 90th anniversary at Dowerin Uniting Church on 30 March. The birthday cake was cut by Aileen Thornett, a member of the Dowerin congregation, in her role as the Shire of Dowerin’s Citizen of the Year.
Dr Diane Hatwell delivered the address on the history of the church and compared the social structure of the community then and now. Rev Alex Murray, a past minister of Dowerin, as well as Colin and Glenice Sanders spoke of past times during the luncheon break. It was noted that Alex Murray was the minister who performed Colin and Glenice’s wedding on the 7 February 1970.
