Rev.Richmond was outstanding as our guest speaker. Deacon Johnnie Pettiford (usher emeritus) served graciously as our Presiding officer. He reminded us (in an eloquent manner) of the rich and royal history that we as ushers share. The capstone of our celebration was when all ushering teams honored Sister Mary Vanhook with gifts and words of love and appreciation. Her Pastor (Pastor Davis of Mt. Zoar) spoke of the loving and everlasting bond that exists between them. A grand time was had by one and all.
