The First Presbyterian Church of East Aurora is celebrating its 200th Anniversary and to commemorate this exciting occasion we are selling afghans (throws) which picture the 4 different churches that were FPCEA from 1818 to 2018. The order form is posted on the web site for your convenience. Or pick one up in the office of First Presbyterian of East Aurora. They come in 4 colors, Cranberry, Hunters Green, Navy and Brown and cost $42. Make the check out to FPCEA or pay cash and return to First Presbyterian 9 Paine Street, East Aurora, N. Y. 14052. Stop in and see a sample of the Afghan hanging in the hall way.

The pictures woven into the fabric came from pen and ink drawings by Ron Colgrove, an artist who was a former resident of S. Wales. 

 

The First Presbyterian Church of East Aurora is celebrating our 200th Anniversary this year. The town of East Aurora is also celebrating their 200th Anniversary. This monumental occasion will be kicked off by the church in January with a pot luck supper followed by a presentation by Rob Goller, Town Historian and will include the history of both EA and FPCEA over the past two centuries. It will be a year long celebration with a different event happening each month through the year 2018. Check the calendar posted for all the exciting happenings and when they will take place.
