Black History Celebration Recap – ABC’s Black History Celebration was a great event! The house was full to experience some wonderful music, praise dance and mime, historical videos and reflections. The climax was a very inspiring speech by Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater, which can be heard here online.

Thanks to the dedicated planning committee, under the leadership of Chair Paula DeVaughn, including Tomi Horn, Carol Wagner, Juanita DeVaughn, Willie Streeter, Claudia and Roland Wiley, and Pastor Van Alstine. Thanks also to the event participants and to Van’s Cleaning Crew.

We are requesting volunteers for the Sunday morning food distribution. We could use help with driving, assisting in food pick up, and sorting the food once it is delivered to the church. It’s easy work, and has become a very important aid to the community, and is an outreach opportunity. Those who are interested in volunteering are asked to please contact Robert DeVaughn
