Mission marks 75 years with banquet


The Union Gospel Mission of Grays Harbor is in its 75th year, and will be hosting a “Diamonds in the Rough” Celebration Banquet on Saturday, May 4th at 6 p.m. in the Rotary Log Pavilion in Aberdeen. Tickets are $25 each or $175 for a table of eight.

The evening will include a special prime rib dinner, as well as a look back to where and when the mission started and the many changes that have occurred over the last 75 years. Banquet guests will also get a chance to hear from men and women who have been changed by the ministry of the Union Gospel Mission and Friendship House, an organization that is supported by private donations from the communities it serves.
