Save the Date! Karen Dickey's Farewell Party

Friday, July 21st, 2023: 6pm - 10pm
James Bay Community School Centre (140 Oswego Street), Victoria

Deadline to send in your contribution for Karen’s “Tribute Book” is this Sunday, July 2nd
Deadline to send in your RSVP for the party is Wednesday, July 5th

Please note: if you have RSVP'd, you will receive an email with party details on July 6th.

Plans are in the works for an evening to showcase Karen's profound career while celebrating her launch into retirement. Of course there will be humour, along with some serious acknowledgment and reflection. 

Our ask of you today:

We are creating a Tribute Book (compiled by Vanya) of your contributions - letters / poems / visual pieces of art / or whatever creative way you'd like to express your appreciation for and of Karen.

Please email these to our organizers at by July 2nd for inclusion in the book. For those needing to submit 'hard copies' (or real art, etc), there will be a 'drop-box' on the Greeter's table in the sanctuary in the coming weeks. 

We will also be collecting a Money Gift. For those who would like to contribute:

- please put your gift in an envelope marked 'Attention Vanya' and either bring it to the church office/place in the 'drop-box', or mail it to the church.

Other details:

On July 16th, which is Karen's last Sunday presiding over the service, we will ask the congregation to bless a hand-knit Prayer Shawl (made by Norma Hill).
