Church Veterans Program
We accepted the invitation from the Restoration Fellowship Church to attend their annual Veterans Appreciation Day service on Sunday, November 5th_ Unfortunately, only four of our members attended - Narce Caliva, Ed Ellis, Charles Hoak, and Lew Ewing. As usual, we received a warm welcome from the members
of the congregation and we were treated to a dynamic sermon by Rev. Jay Ahlemann, Senior Pastor of the Church.
