To the Editor,

The East Dover Baptist Church celebrated 200 years of God’s faithfulness to us this past weekend. We wish to thank the committee members for the hours of work and love that helped make the celebration such a praise!

There were countless people who gave time and energy and contributions to make the weekend a blessing. Our thanks to the Wilmington Baptist Church for their warming dishes, to Bob Edwards for his assistance in recording the weekend events, Boyd Family Farm, Heather’s Flower Shop, and the Richard Hamilton family for the beautiful flowers that graced the sanctuary and food tables. Thank you for the lovely angel begonia plant that greeted everyone, Blue Mountain Produce. A lovely tropical plant from River Valley Market also greeted people as they arrived to visit displays and renew acquaintances. Wilmington Pizza, North Star Bowl, C & S Beverage get our thanks for delicious fare and the donations of ice and water. Our thanks for the wonderful committee shirts goes to Valley Tees (Cathy Flower was wonderful to getting them on very short notice!) We’re certain we forgot someone but if we did thank you!

Above all we thank Our Lord and Savior for his gift given to us so many years ago on Calvary!

In his love and grace,

John and Elizabeth Wheeler and the bicentennial committee

East Dover
