The hundreds who enjoyed the celebration brunch on May 21 are grateful to those remarkable folks who made it happen. The planning team of Jean Koerten, Kathy Koslosky, Winnie Pinch, Debra Burg, and Angie Burg put in hours of scheming, making phone calls,negotiating deals, making centerpieces… And then they were joined by a host of others to set up the Sanctuary and then restore it to its usual look. If only we had kept track of the names of all those who helped!
And thanks to Marilyn Puett for writing parodies and recruiting story-tellers, to Bill Norton for serving as M. C. and for getting video greetings, to Michael Osborn for organizing material for the screens, and to Becky Norton Widhalm for recording worship and the celebration.
Pastor Bob thinks the organizing committee has earned themselves a weekend at Key West. We don't have the money to send them there, but we do have many grateful guests. When you get the opportunity, give them your thanks.
