2022 Ogden Award Winner – Tarry Shipley
The Ogden Award was created in 2001, in loving memory of Richard Ogden, for his dedication to our church family. Dick Ogden’s efforts on behalf of this community, as well as our church, were tireless. Each year we honor someone who embodies the vision and dedication to the church that Dick epitomized. This year, the 2022 Ogden Award goes to someone who has been a member of this church since childhood. We honor an individual who is not just a church pillar, but a Canandaigua icon – someone who has been highly active in our church and community all her life. She just may be the most longstanding member of our church. That person, of course, is Tarry Shipley.
Tarry has been our church’s treasurer “extraordinaire” since 1998 (that’s 24 years!), following 5 years as co-treasurer with her husband Mike. Her reports at the annual meeting were detailed and precise. It is clear to all that she devoted many hours to making sure that the finances of the church were in good order. As Tarry hands over the reins to Steve Brooks, it is time to honor her for all she has done.
