Dear St. Stephen's Family,
The spectacular concert this past Sunday brought us exquisite music under James's direction, and the Paul Mealor composition was a dream come true for Father Nils and for us...no wonder he was so enthusiastic. This was also a Finale Plus for St. Stephen's 175th Anniversary year
So many of you contributed your energy, enthusiasm and the precious commodity of time for our successful celebration. In addition to our two special church services, we enjoyed organ recitals and other musical events with receptions, parish teas and lunches, a square dance and history exhibit, cemetery tour, Dave Barry reception and talk. We reached out to the larger community and brought them into our beautiful church. Thank you, thank you.
A special note of appreciation to the 175th committee members who met faithfully for almost two years, always with good ideas, great local contacts, and hard work: Carol Mortell, Paul Lashmet, Michael Ramsey, Claire Turner, Ed Woodyard, Charity Lunder and our "can do" Rector, Father Nils.
