'God and Country' rally a smashing success

The 23rd Annual Happy Birthday America “God and Country” rally was a big success as it is every year. Thanks to Pastor Alan Humphries and Pastor Jon Watson for all their help, planning, and prayers. Elouise Minogue served as our bookkeeper, Accompanist, and Program developer while Sharon Kinley lead patriotic songs and sang a great “Special Selection.” The Honor Guard from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, AmVets and America Legion brought great reverence for our Flag and national values. The Church of God ushers, parking directors and music staff were invaluable. Our Guest Speaker, Gene Engebretsen, had a most thought-provoking and uplifting  presentation. The Peninsula Clarion, KSRM and the Redoubt Reporter were most helpful in promoting our Speaker and Rally. And finally, thank-you goes to everyone who was present for this salute and celebration that we remain “One Nation, Under God.” Next year’s rally will be the Sunday evening before July 4th at KCHS.
