A special thanks to Donna Lewis Johnson who severed as Mistress of Ceremony. All participants were awesome. Thanks! Novella Wright”
“SOCIAL AND CULTURAL wishes to thank each and every one that participated in the Black History Program "How We Got Over" last Sunday-you are my committee. A very special "thank you" to Shirley Montague for the wonderful decorations; to Kelley & Virgil for the theme and all of its content and especially the participation of our congregants. The food was excellent and plenty of it. We laughed and we shared history-our experiences. Thanks from my heart. Sharon Wardlaw”
