In 1981, through the inspirational foresight and benevolence of two generous donors, Evelyn and George J. Van Beek (1919-2011), the Experimental Fund of The Presbyterian Church in Canada was established. Mr. and Mrs. Van Beek were residents of Glengarry County and Mr. Van Beek served as an Elder and as Clerk of Session of St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Cornwall, Ontario. Mrs. Van Beek died in February, 2001, and Mr. Van Beek died January 2011.
