About 50 folks joined together March 12, for this year’s Winter/Spring Banquet, the theme of which was “Around the World.”
Highlights included a time of tribute to recently passed Bob Bruce and Jean Knue, and Kathy Bruce’s shared remembrance of her trip to Ireland with Bob.
Dr. Terrell Carter emceed the event, and performers included Aerin Johnson, Rick Clevlen, Pat Clark, Heather Arno, Jim Arno, Ken Clark, Kathy Bruce, and Carolyn Kuykendall.
The program included parodies and songs from other countries (plus Neil Diamond’s “America”) and stories set in other countries. Also as always the brilliant Laura Vonland Unterweger provided the piano accompaniment, and Eric Clark manned the technology.
