On Sunday, February 3, the Mardi Gras committee made a very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mardi Gras, scheduled for February 9, due to low ticket sales. Even though the committee had already spent a couple of months planning the event, we knew it was the right decision.
I want to personally thank Whitney Henion, committee chair, Greg Henion, Art and Trudy Kayser for the time and work they had already contributed to the organizing of the event. Planning such a major event takes many hours.
I would also like to thank the many individuals who so generously donated to the Friends of Music the money they had given for tickets to the Mardi Gras event as well as those who helped sponsor the event. Your contributions are so very much appreciated.
I do hope you are planning to attend the ‘Celebrate! Youth and the Arts’n April 21 at 3:00. We have some incredibly talented youth in our congregation. This is your opportunity to see their talent in ways you don’t see on Sundays during a church service.
Jeanne Teisher, Chair, Music Committee
