Ocean Point Column
By Maryellen Bertrand
The celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Wilson Chapel was a beautiful service with a very large crowd in attendance; Rev. Thomas Kerr presided over the ceremony. Nat Wilson spoke of his family’s involvement in building the Chapel and President Stan Martin gave a brief history of the chapel. Several Ocean Pointers recalled their own personal memories of the chapel through the years; it was a memorable day for all.
