On Sunday, June 3, 2001, twenty-six members of our Alleluia
Choir went to the Brethren Home Community in New Oxford, PA
to celebrate children's day there. (We provided the
children!) The group sang ten songs during the morning
commented that during that week she had had surgery to
remove skin cancer from her face and didn't think she should
attend worship that Sunday. She was prepared to watch the
service on TV. When she heard that children were coming,
however, she changed her mind and decided to attend.
celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary was so very happy
to have the special music to make their day even more
special. Afterwards the children enjoyed relating to the
Layman, a former moderator at Long Green, talked to the
children about the hand carved cross displayed in the
entrance to the Nicarry Meetinghouse. It is crafted from
beautiful Brazillian cherry wood and based on the Church of
the Brethren logo.
After eating lunch in
the dining room, the group stopped at the cottage of Betty
Southard to sing for her before coming home.
