More than 300 Maritimers gathered together across the region for three 50+ Rallies, where they enjoyed fellowship and an all-around fun time.

The rallies were held in Sussex, NB, Sydney, NS, and Halifax and kicked off with sing-songs and hot luncheons. Following the luncheon, attendees took part in afternoon services led by Major Winnie Perrin, Divisional Secretary for Adult Ministries for the Maritime Division.

The theme of the rallies for 2013 was “Transformation”, encouraging attendees to reflect on the transformations that occur in their lives.

“The days were filled with enthusiasm and excitement, as we all enjoyed testimonies, vocals and musical talents together,” says Major Winnie. “Each rally was a great day for all who attended.”

Nice crowds turned out in Sussex, NB, left, and Sydney, NS, for 50+ Rallies.
