The First Connor Company of the Boys’ Brigade has held its 73rd Annual Display in Connor Presbyterian Church halls.
The evening, which was very well supported, with over 120 family members, relatives and friends in attendance, was chaired by the Company’s chaplain, Rev. Philip Thompson.
Following the ‘Fall In’ of Company and Colours and opening praise, the boys presented a varied programme of drill, games and songs.
Among the highlights were the Anchor Boys’ choruses and the enactment of the worship song ‘Oceans’ under UV
lights by the Company Section (pictured).
In his remarks, Rev. Thompson commended the boys for their efforts throughout the Display and briefly addressed the boys on Hebrews 6.
The boys were presented with their annual awards by Mrs. Thompson.
