During Sunday's service, different groups in the parish honored Kathryn for her work and time with us. The choir sang a blessing; the children gave her a photo album and a stole (made by Deb) with each child's thumbprint and drawing; the young adults placed flowers in her honor; and the parish took an offering for her, presented by our senior warden.
After the service we had a wonderful covered dish in the Hogan Room that included ham, many, many sides, salads, dips, and a very large cake. We also had an old school sherbet + soda punch. A pair of parishioners decorated the tables with beautiful wildflowers from their gardens and the local farmer's market. Everyone had a great time, enjoying the food and the fellowship.
Thank you to everyone who made this Sunday a wonderful day. And thank you to Kathryn for her leadership over the past two years. Blessings on your next journey!
