Pastoral Counseling Services Good Samaritan Award

Tuesday, October 7


Each year, Pastoral Counseling Services honors members of the community who they feel have worked to strengthen communities and improve life in New Hampshire.    The honorees come from the fields of business, education, media and the arts, medicine and healing, religion and a community "rising star".  This year's religion honoree is our own Pastor Dawn.  The Good Samaritan Award Celebration will be held on October 7, from 5:30 - 8:00 at LaBelle Winery in Amherst.  Tickets are $75 per person.  If you would like to attend, please contact the church office so your name can be added to the Brookside "table" list and send a check made out to Brookside Congregational Church.  After September 3, tickets for the event can be purchased by contacting Pastoral Counseling Services, 627-2702.
