The culmination of Bethel A.M.E. celebrating their 2014 Sisters’ Month was a spectacular event! Five deserving women of Bethel were honored at a Banquet on Saturday, March 29th, in Bethel’s Mary E. Dixon Fellowship Hall.
The honorees were Sister Ophelia Colston, Sister Christine Gooding, Sister Mattie Harris, Sister Jennie Drain and last but not least, Sister Ida Valentine. Each woman’s biography, drew laughter, astonishment and praise from a room filled with friends and family as they received their bouquet of a dozen roses.
Congratulations and Well wishes followed after the Living Legends presentation as the servers brought out the feast! The evening was complete with remarks and the benediction by the Pastor of Bethel A.M.E., Rev. Clifton Riley. This event concluded a month long celebration that featured a “March into Spring” Fashion Show, a “Sister to Sister” Tea, a charity Golf Tournament and a Health Fair and Business Expo.
The Sisters at Bethel A.M.E. Church know how to celebrate March Madness!
