Congregation members and residents of Poplar Point will be donning their Sunday best on Aug. 11 as they prepare to attend the annual anniversary service at St. Anne’s Anglican Church.


And the church itself will have a new look after being recently painted inside and out.


While the interior of the historic wooden church, erected from 1862-64, was repainted last year, the exterior was recently done thanks to a Designated Heritage Building grant from Manitoba Culture, Heritage and Tourism, Historic Resources Branch.


Longtime congregation member and church warden Monica Griffiths said the 10:30 a.m. service will be followed by a picnic. She said last year, they expected a few dozen people to attend the service, but had over 60.


Beth and Brian Koshowski are relatively new to the Poplar Point area, having moved from Winnipeg three years ago. Although neither one was raised in the Anglican faith, Beth said they were willing to pitch in and help with the priming and painting.


"We love that it’s a community church," she said.


Services are held inside the church during the summer months, but when the cold weather arrives, the congregation meets at the local Anglican parish hall.
