In January, Dorothy LeFevre turned 100 years old! The church held a special celebration in her honor. Approximately 85 people came to the party, which began with a music concert in the Sanctuary performed by three organists--Ann Young, Fairy Flickenger, and Ferree LeFevre--and the Senior Choir of Westminster Church of the Brethren, led by Julie Richard. At that concert, Mark Woodworth was the master of ceremonies and Ernie Rice, Jeanne Dussault, and Pastor Glenn McCrickard also provided reflections about Dorothy. After the music program, there was a reception for our centenarian in the Fellowship Hall where Gabe Lindsay, her great-grandson played the guitar while guests ate and enjoyed each other's company.
Dorothy has been an extremely important part of Westminster Church of the Brethren over many decades. She began singing in the choir when she was 19 years old and went on to direct the choir for 37 years. Among her many accomplishments for the church were organizing a campaign to buy the church organ and initiating the Candlelight Service we still have annually.
