The 105th Anniversary Service at the Robson Community Memorial Church was held on November 4 – to not only acknowledge the service and dedication of the brave soldiers who served our country, but to also dedicate the beautiful new addition to the Church.

The new kitchen and washroom extensions with wheelchair accessibility are almost complete.  The Trustees of the RCMCS are so grateful for the support and donations from the volunteers that have made this addition possible.  The Church, which was built in 1907, is a quaint little building available for rental for meetings, small weddings, funerals or family gatherings.

The non-profit Robson Community Memorial Church Society consists of volunteers who manage the Church, Resker Hall and the Robson Community Cemetery. The Trustees look after the facilities, the selling of plots in the cemetery, utilities and insurance.

We invite the public to the Christmas Service on Dec. 23, 7 p.m. at 2953 Waldie Avenue, Robson.

For more information, rentals or to make a tax deductible contribution, contact the RCMCS at Box 21, Robson, BC, V0G 1X0 or call Ken/Elaine Hood at 250-365-6506.

We are very thankful for the support of the Columbia Basin Trust for their generous funding.

This funding along with other donations has assisted us greatly in completing our capital projects. We would like to acknowledge recent contributors who have supported the Church through their volunteer efforts and financial donations. We would not have been able to continue with the upgrades had it not been for their involvement.  Many, many thanks!
