BEEFSTEAK DINNER- Fund Raising Events for Building Repair
The Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green's Benefit Beefsteak Dinner took place on June 7, 2013, at the Essex Manor in Bloomfield, NJ. This event raised funds to restore the church's historic sanctuary building. Bobby Valli's "Jersey Legends" show headlined the evening, which also included a DJ, Tricky Tray, 50/50 raffle, and lots of beef. Everyone had a good time!

THANK YOU TO ALL! BEEFSTEAK DINNER A HUGE SUCCESS!
A big thank you to everyone who worked to make the Beefsteak Dinner an amazing success! There were over 160 in attendance, and our profit thus far is $6,500 and counting - all toward our historic sanctuary renovation project. Thanks to all who worked behing the scenes and all who supported us by attending, selling tickets, selling ads for the Ad Book and donating to our Tricky Tray! And a very special thank you to our featured performer, Bobby Valli, who volunteered his time and talent on our behalf, turning an otherwise fun and profitable evening into a night we all will remember.

NEW MEMBERS WELCOMED
"Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee," was our opening hymn on Sunday, May 5, 2013, and joy was in the air as we welcomed six new members, along with four children and a teenager. Our joy spilled over into the coffee hour as we shared cake, punch, smiles and hugs; from Pastor Ruth.
