Dan Sommerer added this as a comment last week, but since not everyone sees every comment, I thought I would republish it so that more people would get a chance to see it. Thanks to everyone who has sent in Halloween pictures. If you haven’t yet, lets get on the ball…
If anyone is interested, our men’s group at Honey Creek has made a CD. It has 12 of the oldies but goodies favorite church hymns on it plus the Doxology –making 13 total. I think of standing in the kitchen at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s or at Heit’s Point singing the Doxology with you every time I hear it. Doug and Joseph are in the group playing the harmonica, fiddle and mandolin. I’m not sure why my brothers got all the instrument playing talent, but they did. Doug and Joe Joe do a great job. I sing lead and harmony. This CD was recorded in the church basement with some relatively inexpensive equipment but it still sounds good.
Denise just looked over my shoulder and told me not to write about the equipment, but it’s true. We have dedicated the CD to our friend Mitch Berendzen who was killed in July 2010 just before the national Lutheran youth gathering in New Orleans —he and his wife Betty are (were) youth leaders from Honey Creek. On the album back there is a picture of all the kids’ hands that went to the gathering and they were wearing bracelets made out of the flowers at his funeral. The profits from the sales of these videos are going to the new school building project at Honey Creek. Maybe the next CD will be giving to Calvary. If you are interested in a CD just let Lolly or me know and we can get you one. WE are asking for a donation of $13 to pay for the making of the CD cover and case as well as something for the school building.
Ralph got the first CD we sold, but paid $200 for his signed copy, copy number 1.
Just to update you. The Blessing/Consecration for the new Calvary High School building will be November 14th. Dedication will be later when we have more time to plan. We are going to try to move into and start using the school over Thanksgiving weekend. That’s a huge “Praise God From Whom all Blessings Flow.” I can’t believe it’s happening. It still seems like we are still so far away—but it’s really happening. You all have been so supportive of this school from the very start, each of you in so many ways—BLESS YOU ALL!!!
I’ll keep you all posted.. Love to all.
You can find contact information for Danny or Aunt Lolly in the address book in the tools menu at the top of the page (you know, so you can order a CD). Actually, you could probably just put that you want one in the comments below too.
