Retirement Celebration at Roseburg Church

A retirement celebration was held Feb. 21 for Linda Trenholm, Roseburg (Ore.) Church long-time secretary and custodian. A surprise potluck at the Better Living Center drew many friends and supporters to help Trenholm celebrate her many years of service.

Trenholm began work as a custodian nine years before becoming the church secretary, which she has been for the last 20 years. She has served 29 years under the leadership of 10 different senior pastors and many more associate, assistant and intern pastors.

A special guest and former pastor of the Roseburg Church, Stan Beerman, Oregon Conference ministerial director, made appreciative remarks about Trenholm's faithful service.

Adding to his remarks was Lyle Arakaki, current Roseburg Church pastor, who, although he has not worked long with Trenholm, praised her also for her dedicated service.

As part of the celebration, Amber and Isaac Arakaki performed a violin duet, "Let There Be Peace On Earth," accompanied by their mother, Iris. Sandra Haynes shared a poem entitled "Retirement."

After dinner, a beautiful cake, donated by the social committee, was enjoyed by all. Guests placed cards of appreciation in a decorated basket in the entry so Trenholm could take them home. The Roseburg Church thanks Linda, for her faithful service and wishes her well in her retirement years.
