Special Thanks

I wish to thank the Greenland Baptist Church family, especially Pastor Sinclair Butler, all pulpit associates, officers, members and friends (especially Sister Diane Brown), for the kind and warm manner in which they accepted and received me on Feb. 2. It was a pleasure sharing with them as they conducted their annual Black History Program.

All participants performed in an outstanding manner, with special appreciation to the wonderful Mistress of Ceremony, Sister Catherine Gourdine, the church’s youth praise dancers, the wonderful poem and a most delicious repast.
