On Saturday, October 27, 2018, Canaan Baptist Church held a special event to honor their congregation’s senior members. All of the 40 honorees were members who are 80 years or older. One of the oldest honorees had recently turned 100 years old. Unfortunately, a few of the honorees were not present due to health issues and two of the honorees, the late Bro. Joseph Burtin, and the late Sis. Martha Smith, passed during the planning. All of the honorees were presented with a crown to wear for the day and a plaque thanking them for their contributions to Canaan Baptist Church.
