Best wishes and farewells for pastor

South Boston News
The Clarksville community on Sunday said farewell to Jamieson Memorial United Methodist Church pastor and choir director, the Rev. Walter Westbrook, his wife, Betty, and their daughter, Cassidy (shown at left), at a reception at the church. Rev. Westbrook has accepted a call to serve as pastor of St. Matthias United Methodist Church in Fredericksburg after 11 years in Clarksville. He will be remembered for his contributions to the community as a volunteer at Clarksville Elementary School and as a member of the Lake Country Chorale, as well as for his prison ministry at Mecklenburg and Brunswick Correctional Centers and his music ministry at MeadowView Terrace. The United Methodist Women presented mission pins to Walt and Betty, and Walt received a plaque from the MeadowView Terrace, a silver guitar pic from the Clarksville Community Players, and a shoebox full of mementos from the youth group.
