Summerlea's annual anniversary dinner took place at
6 PM Saturday, 4 February. It was decided to celebrate the
60th anniversary of the opening of the existing Summerlea
buildings, which were opened in October 1952|
The dinner consisted of soup or tomato juice, pork goulash, harvest vegetables, mashed potatoes, apple cake with ice cream and tea / coffee / milk.
Following the delicious meal, all repaired to the sanctuary to enjoy a very varied and enjoyable variety show. The performers, all Summerlea folk, presented the following events:
Many thanks to Marion, Undeg, Mary, Bonnie, Sheila, Janet and all the others who spent countless hours in the kitchen all week to prepare the meal, during dinner and cleaning up afterwards. And we didn't get a photo of any of them!
The photos below were taken from afar in low light, so are not as sharp as were the performers.
