When the crowd entered the softly lit building, En’Trigue Band was there playing smooth jazz and the latest R&B sounds for everyone’s entertainment.

As everyone took their seats, dressed in their Gala attire, Rev.

Dinner for the evening consist- ed of Roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad, rolls and iced tea. Door prizes were given to many of the attendees by Sister Judith E. Hollinshead who was the mistress of ceremony for the evening.
