September 30 to October 2 the Hillsborough Baptist Church will be celebrating its 200th Anniversary. In essence, it will actually be winding up its anniversary year. The church has been celebrating this special milestone anniversary with different events held throughout the year.
In March, members went to Broadleaf Ranch and participated in an old-fashioned sleigh ride with hot chocolate and cookies. There was also space provided inside the lodge where people of all ages played games together.
This event happened in order to create “Togetherness” by bringing all ages together to create a beautiful piece of artwork. Those who were unable to attend were provided with the opportunity to sign the quilt block before it was displayed outside the building.
The Anniversary Committee: Rev. Geoff deJong, Rev. Dean MacDonald, Katrina Steeves, Nettie Steeves, and Chandra Smith
Finally, Rally Sunday was held on September 11 where the children who attended Vacation Bible School this summer performed. Attendees enjoyed a BBQ and some old fashioned games such as an egg race, three-legged races and wheelbarrow races.
