On Sunday, December 4, we celebrated the Advent season with a soup and salad dinner followed by a great talent show. Thanks to Kim Haggerty and the fellowship committee for organizing a wonderful evening. Here's a note from Kim:

Applause to Rose Anne Holman, Karen Hurtado and the team for uncovering the hidden talents within our own Abiding Grace Lutheran Church. We enjoyed angelic voices from our “little people” and the harmonizing vocals of Lift Every Voice led by Sue Dalbout and accompanied by Susie Henning. We witnessed emerging talent with the singing of Max, a sing-along led by Michelle Billardello, Lisa Harrington and Julie Nelson and an enjoyable revelry with the Perkins "sisters", Sandy and Erin; and we discovered the reason for Ricki Hurtado’s recent unpleasant mood. George Burns and Gracie Allen honored us with their presence, and to top it off, Santa and Mrs. Claus took time from their busy schedule to make an appearance. Thanks to our hostesses Rose Anne and Sue Ellen.

A special thanks goes out to everyone on the Fellowship Team who transformed our space into an elegant dining venue: Pat Christensen, Linda Gaffney, Carol Renwick, Lisa Derasaugh, Kim Saunders, Bridgette Shamburger and Sandy Perkins–you ladies ROCK!  The clean-up crew was fan-tabulous and quick. My apologies if I failed to mention your namemy memory is not as good as it used to be.  A heartfelt THANKS to everyone who made Advent Dinner a huge success! Next year promises to be even better.
