We are thanking each one of our sponsors with a nice letter on stationary, often personally delivered. If you should see any of these folks, please thank them as well.
And thanks to each and every person who met, planned, served, recycled, cooked, greeted, registered, packed gift bags, purchased items and transported them, publicized the event in any way, to those who shared the event on Facebook, cleaned up, monitored the property and welcomed and engaged our guests in any way.
Thanks to Andrea Underwood who motivated us to sing during our old fashioned hymn sing at 10:45.
And finally to church staff, who are involved and working in every way to make such an event a success.
What a great day it was!
Thanks be to God.
Moving to the deeper places,
