The Presbyterian Music Camp Committee is pleased to establish The Tom Gemmell Presbyterian Music Camp Bursary Fund in grateful memory of The Rev. Dr. Thomas Gemmell, who passed away on May 13, 2012.  Tom was a devoted Presbyterian, having served congregations in Whitehorse, Oshawa, St-Laurent, Ajax and Ottawa. Tom had a deep love of music, and Tom’s family and the Presbyterian Music Camp Committee are convinced that the Tom Gemmell Bursary Fund would be an appropriate way to remember Tom and to encourage more people to experience the joy and Christian community life of Presbyterian Music Camp. The Tom Gemmell Bursary Fund will provide bursaries to cover the cost of attending Presbyterian Music Camp for one member of the clergy or certified student, and one Music Director.
