Celebrate a friend – We have received news that Rev. Lee Dorsey retired on February 25 after 32 years in pastoral and interim ministry. He served his first call as the pastor of Washington Avenue Presbyterian Church (now Unity) from 1986 to 1996 and worked closely with Central. His wife, Jan, requests cards and notes of congratulations and especially memories. A card from the Central congregation will be in fellowship hall on Sunday to sign. If you would like to send a personal note to Lee, please send it to his daughter’s home to keep it a surprise.
