Friday Night Fun & Fellowship - November 13
Our next Friday Night Dinner will be on November 13th at 6:30 pm. We will take another walk down memory lane to the 1940's with a salute to our military. Sacrifices were many but people pulled together to try to make ends meet and keep spirits high. Our dinner will not be rationed so bring along your appetite and your singing voice because you may want to sing along to some of the familiar tunes. Our program of the evening, performed by Karen Luschar, is "Singing for Victory - Songs of WWII". Don't miss this one! Tickets are only $8 and will be sold on November 1st and November 8th after Sunday Worship and on weekdays at the Church office. No tickets will be sold at the door.
