Anglican Church report

One of the passions of Dr. Frank Hedges was recording and preserving history. He spent countless hours after his retirement documenting and displaying artifacts. My family is grateful to the Rimbey Historical Society for the recognition his work received at Pas-Ka-Poo Park by way of the Memory board.

To continue with what he set out to do – what he would have undoubtedly done – it became my passion to celebrate 100 years of the little log church.

Thanks to the detailed journals of early settlers, missionaries and clergymen, we are able to visualize the life the Anglican Church had in the west in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

In 1907, Reverend Potstone was the minister here when the church was built and with his camera, recorded with amazing clarity, life in this area.

On behalf of the Anglican Church which sponsored the recent Centennial celebrations, I would like to thank those who helped in any way to prepare for the celebration.

Thank you also to all from this community and from afar, who attended making it the wonderful celebration that it was. Blessings to all.
