THANK YOU! I would like to thank everyone who donated money, time and talent in our quest to buy a new piano! Thank you to the choir for rehearsing, singing and cooking for the Musical Extravaganza last fall, thank you to all who came to our dinner, thank you to all who gave donations, and finally, thank you to the vestry which approved the contribution of additional funds from the Memorial Account. Today we will dedicate the new Yamaha piano at the 10:30 service. It is a joy to play and an instrument which will add beauty to our services for years to come.
