Sunday, August 14th was the last day of the 100 Year Celebration. The day began with a Community Church Service with John Sheppard as MC. John played some hymns for everyone to sing along, also Clara White sang a hymn. Pastor Gary Penner from Abundant Living gave the sermon.

Following the service was Brunch with pancakes, sausages, potatoes, beans, roast beef, muffins and more. It was a delicious brunch and everyone was encouraged to have a second helping. Many of the visitors said their goodbyes at the brunch before heading home.

One of the tents was taken down to be used at the Amulet Heritage Picnic.

Later in the afternoon was the Amulet Heritage Picnic at the Amulet site. The afternoon was spent visiting, old time games for the children and musical entertainment. The musicians for the afternoon were Viola Philips, Florence Galbraith, Norma Johnson, Joan Klemenz and Wayne Moerike. The afternoon concluded with a pot luck supper that was fit for royalty.

Esther Thompson (nee Erickson), who will be 95 this year and a past resident of the Amulet area, had the honor of cutting the birthday cake.

Approximately 190 people attend the celebration coming from BC, Alberta, Manitoba, and several parts of Saskatchewan.
