A major overhaul of the Beach United Church took place four years ago. PHOTO: David Van Dyke

I shot the first panorama four years ago. It showed the major overhaul of Kew Beach United Church, that had recently merged with Bellefair United.

The church building on Bellefair was sold to developers, which in turn helped finance the massive renovation of the church on Wineva, now called Beach United Church.

In the last edition, Anna Killen wrote about the plans for the land adjacent to the church. A 30-car parking lot is proposed for the site. I remember the gymnasium that stood here and all the fun times there when my son was in boy scouts.

When I visited the new Beaches Church I was still surprised they demolished the auditorium. It has some great memories from Sunday School,80th Cub Pack and Jr. Bible Class. Now a parking lot. Looking in the church I recalled taking my Sunday School class up to balcony for church. Who can remember Dr. Gray or Ben Hodder. I wish them well
