Thank you too, to Jane Baumer and Emily Weimert for their assistance and to Drew Wright for his work w/ the youth choir. Thanks to all the kids - young and old(er) - for the great job they did. Also - thank you to Martha Wylie for her flute solo, Tammy Geelhaar for her solo, Don Romano for accompanying Tammy, and Muriel Hopkins for playing the organ and supplying some sound effects! It was a great program.
Thanks to Bruce Edwards, and his kitchen crew (Terry Dunkin, Don Romano, Melissa Hillman, Martha Wylie and David Wylie) (I hope I got everyone!) The roast beef and other grub were all mighty tasty!!!
