Archie and I had a wonderful Christmas. The Friday before, Archie’s daughter and her family who live in Harrisburg came to Sunbury to have Christmas. Then on Sunday evening Kirk […]

Christmas Program

Thank you, thank you, thank you. But really, I can’t take much of the credit for the success of this year’s program. Since my voice decided not to cooperate, I asked Dwain Straight to direct it this year. He previously gave me a copy of the Christmas Cantata and we thought that would be the […]
