A Carols Thank You!

Carols for Christmastime 2018 is in the books, and what a time it was!
A program like that doesn’t come together through the efforts of one person. It takes a huge team of people to pull it all together. I didn’t feel like I was able to do that adequately at the program, so I’d like to take a few lines to express my sincere gratitude to the following people:
Carmel Hearn, Brittany Leazer, Michelle Miller, Laura Shepherd – for their assistance with the script and with stage managing the performances.
Amy Parrish – for help with casting and coaching our actor.
The Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre – Anna Elise Beals, Sarah Bongiavonni, Eliza Burba, Campbell Clark, Lydia Gibson, Mia Johnson, Annabelle Terry, Akilah Webb and Meridith Burba, for joining forces with us and providing some wonderfully entertaining dance routines.
My awesome Set Team – Regina Brown, Renee Doolittle, Brian Foley, Carol DeCesare, Dawn Menear, Becky McDaniel, Amy McDaneil, Mary Beth, Mike, Lizzie and Katie Burgiss + plus all the last minute “reinforcements” who helped paint all the trees!
And last, but certainly not least – all of the Mt. Bethel staff members who came alongside the music department to make all of our imaginations into a reality. Media, Communications, Hospitality, Maintenance, Discipleship, Connections…thank you for all that you did!
I’ve heard from many of you about how much you enjoyed the show; here’s a little secret…I enjoyed it just as much as you! The nostalgia, energy, and fun of this year’s program made it a true joy for me and the choir to prepare and present to all of you. And your rousing applause and laughter made it that much better! We have to thank you, the Mt. Bethel membership and the entire East Cobb community for supporting us.
