Many, many thanks to all those who helped make our May 22nd celebration of Erin’s ministry such a success! Thanks to all who attended—it wouldn’t have been a celebration without you!!
Special thanks to those who helped with organizing, preparing food, setting up, and cleaning up. Thanks to Saul Lookner and Julia Huston and the plant-based eating group for purchasing and preparing all the delicious food and drink. Jeannie Chaisson arranged for the flowers and made coffee along with Marc Kaufman. Thank you to our technical folks for AV work—Bob Persons and Jud Leonard. Kevin Osborne put together the slide show from the pictures you all contributed. Thanks to the set-up crew who erected tents, set-up and decorated in the blistering heat—Jonathan Lilienfeld, Robert Lakomski, Barbara Deck, Bob Persons, Helen Jordan, Walter Graham, Emily Gelbert, and Chris Welles. And to those hearty souls who stayed after the event to clean up—Eileen Kurkowski, Lynne Karlson, Bruce Kimball, Connie Stubbs, Chris Dame, Bobbie Sproat, and Jud Leonard.
Thank you to those who worked on the gifts. Wendy Haskell made the wonderful memory book and Kit Ryan sewed the beautiful quilt. Thank you to Tom Bean for getting the planning started and, along with Anne Watson Born, commissioning the lovely new hymn.
And thanks to those who just pitched it to help! Apologies to those we inadvertently missed in these thank yous.
