April Entertainment hosted by MLC
Millcreek Lutheran's birthday entertainment evening for the Spang Crest residents in April was a huge success and enjoyed by all. There were 25 residents and some guests that were entertained that evening, including both of our Millcreek members-Eva Bennetch and Betty Gibble. We celebrated nine birthdays during the month of April, including Eva Bennetch. The residents enjoyed a night of music by Julie Strickler and Deb Tice. We gave out many prizes which were enjoyed by all the residents. The night ended with light refreshments. Many, many compliments were give to Millcreek regarding how the residents so enjoy this evening of music. It's awesome to see the residents singing along with the music that is played. Thank you ever so much for everyone who donated prizes and gifts or money to help purchase things for the evening. Thank you again so much to Julie and Deb for sharing their musical talent. Thanks also for Peg, Linda R, Linda S, Mary, Dara, Marian, and Don for helping to make this night enjoyable for all. A GREAT NIGHT!!!
The spring Kauffman's Chicken Barbecue put on by the Friends of Spang Crest in May was a huge success. 700 chicken barbecue dinners were sold along with many baked goods which enabled the organization to raise a record $2,862 that will again go toward purchases for Spang Crest, summer concerts or other special events or for benevolent funds. Next barbecue will be held in the fall.
ATTENTION--4 free music concerts will be held at Spang Crest through the summer and are open for everyone to enjoy. The dates of these concerts will be announced in our future weekly church bulletin and the June newsletter. These are excellent concerts and hopefully more of our church members will take the opportunity to come and enjoy. These concerts are just one of the many things provided through the funds collected by the Friends of Spang Spang. Come and enjoy!!!
