Church Picnic

Despite the uncertain weather forecast, we had a delightful (and rain free!) picnic on the afternoon of Sunday, May 20th.  Good food, fun games, and wonderful songs were shared by all.

Many thanks to the members of our church Fellowship Commission for organizing this annual treat!

Ukulele Choir – Concert at Elderhaus

Friday, May 11th our Ukulele Choir traveled to Elderhaus – an adult day care center – to share a concert with our friends there.  We had a great deal of fun sharing some of our “greatest hits” and sing-a-long favorites.  Many thanks to Ed, Sharon, and the members of our Adult Ukulele Choir for the latest edition of this fun and musical service project.

We love going out and sharing music with friends in the community!

Love. Serve. Ukulele.
