Anniversary Dinner & Entertainment Feb 7, 2009
Posted 9 Feb, 2009
Summerlea's annual Anniversary Dinner took place Saturday evening February 7, 2009 in Acadia Hall, followed by entertainment in the Sanctuary. The chicken pie dinner was prepared by our intrepid Summerlea kitchen crew and served by the Youth Group, with help from their leaders. The Youth Group also set up the tables Saturday morning, cleared the tables and put them away after dinner, and washed the dishes. Thanks team.

The attendance was not as large as usual, perhaps because of warnings of freezing rain (some did occur during the entertainment). Following dinner, the assemblage repaired to the sanctuary for a presentation of music and humorous anecdotes arranged by Summerlea's music director Connie Osborne and friends.

The servers lined up to get snapped in their Habs regalia
(which did not seem to help the Habs as they lost to the Leafs).
