Two oil paintings have been chosen to hang in the Friendship Room. The first called “Through Sunlit Leaves” is in memory of Verna and George Rose. The Roses’ talented contributions to Bower Hill did much to beautify BHCC—especially the Friendship Room, Sanctuary and Deck the Halls. It is fitting that a painting is chosen as a memorial as George himself was an artist in every way.
The second painting “What A Great Day” is in honor of Peggy and Raymond Craig. Long-time faithful members of BHCC, both were active in many community activities and were examples of what community in our name implies. A portion of their memorial money was also used for organ repair earlier this year.
Both paintings are from the collection of fine art painted by Leo Goode and are landscapes of Western Pennsylvania. Leo is an accomplished artist, having received many accolades and awards, and is currently exhibiting his work in galleries in Annapolis and Gettysburg.
We are grateful to these former church members for their lives of service in the community and at Bower Hill Community Church.
