St. Andrew's, Pictou, N.S.
St. Andrew's, commonly known as the Kirk, recently held an auction and dessert party with proceeds going towards the recent church renovations (a new entrance to the basement, new stairways, an elevator, an accessible washroom and a new meeting room).This hall tree was made by Kirk minister, Rev. Steven Webb, who is a woodworker and cabinet maker. He fashioned it from one of the doors discarded during the renovations. This historic piece of furniture, which included original cast brass door knobs and old coat hooks from another area, was offered for sale at the auction. Thus the old helped pay for the new. Admiring the hall tree are Betty Ann Battist, chair of the auction and Rev. Steven Webb.
