“Things My Teachers Taught Me” – Sharing and Recitals
Traditionally November is the month for our Thanksgiving holiday. There is so much to be thankful for. With appreciation and gratitude I wish to express my feelings towards you, my dear friends and colleagues. It is behind a very different “desk” in which we sit, and oh, how lucky we really are! We have been blessed with gifts of the spirit. We are special and in our own unique way we serve others while giving back to the Creator simultaneously.
The November 17, 2014 meeting will be at Mount Lebanon United Methodist Church, 3319 West Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15216 , 412.531.7131, www.mlumc.org The original program has been s changed due to the untimely passing of our dear friend Don Wilkins who was to be our program guest. Since he was such an influence as an educator and mentor, we decided that we would honor him and others who have taught, influenced, and mentored, in a dedicational recital given by our very own members. The new program is “Things My Teachers Taught Me.” It will be a celebratory sharing of music and memories! Very uplifting!
Our caterer, Joe’s Rusty Nail, is preparing a sumptuous Thanksgiving meal for us. This month our meeting is on the 3rd Monday to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday. Because of this reservations are due by Friday November 7. Don’t delay! Get your reservations in early!
Also, I’d like to extend many thanks to our hosts Dr. Gretchen Franz and Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church, for inviting us to use their warm fellowship and worship space.
I’m looking forward to seeing (and hearing) you at the November recital event as we share and enjoy our musical gifts and memories.
