Kudos to Janet Hill who conceived, created, and planned a festive observance of Bach’s 338th birthday for our March chapter event. Kudos also to the fine performances by chapter members Thomas Fielding, Marilyn Ossentjuk, John Ourensma, Mark Wells,
Michael Montgomery, Keith Eiser, Kay Ensfield, and
Caleb Williams. A choir of over 20 voices came from eight churches.

Large audience. Great success.

Here at the close of the year’s programs, we thank each of our board members who have really stepped up to the plate in planning and carrying out each of our programs and areas of operation this past year:  Marilyn Ossentjuck, Kay Ensfield, Jim Konkel, Deb Rafferty, Randy Turpin, Michel Montgomery, Carl Doubleday, Tom Fielding and Rev. Caleb Williams. This great group of colleagues has been a huge blessing to me personally as well as to the whole chapter!
