Anniversary Dinner & Show Feb 16, 2008
Posted 19 Feb, 2008
Summerlea's annual Anniversary Dinner took place Saturday evening February 16, 2008 in Acadia Hall, followed by a concert / show in the Sanctuary. The turkey pie dinner was prepared by our intrepid Summerlea kitchen crew and served buffet style. The Youth Group set up the tables Saturday morning, served dessert and cleared the tables and put them away after dinner, and washed the dishes. Thanks team.
Following dinner, the assemblage repaired to the sanctuary for a presentation of song and humorous anecdotes arranged by Summerlea's music director Connie Osborne and friends.

The miscreant photographer caught only one shot
of a few of the workers taking a snack break.

Then it was off to the sanctuary, after a short break while
the musical instruments warmed up from the winter cold.

Don't know how she managed all those mangled words,

The audience certainly couldn't.
