ST. PAUL'S PARISH HALL HISTORY
Mary (Maxwell) Adams lovely story about the building of the parish hall.
Charles W. Coupland
My grandfather, Charles W. Coupland and his son Warwick built the St. Paul’s Parish Hall, for the most part in 1927 and 1928. His journal records much of the work he completed and an entry dated February 8, 1928 states: “ the Parish Hall opened tonight , concert and supper . Money taken in at door $123.75.”
When completed others laid claim to this new ‘Community' Hall but Charlie made a point of specifying the ownership of the Hall to St. Paul’s Anglican Church and ensuring the community would be welcomed guests there. That welcome extends to this day and still hosts many types of gatherings.
Charlie and his wife Mary, better known locally as Mamie, were long time members of St. Paul’s Church, as were her parents Mary Noble and Robert Glendinning. Mamie and her older sister Sara played the Church organ. Mamie’s daughter Mary Elizabeth took over that duty as organist and choir leader and also taught Sunday school.
Mary Elizabeth married Reverend (later Canon) James Maxwell in 1949. He was the rector assigned to St.Paul’s in the 1940’s and 50’s. These were my parents.
