I found this fantastic 7 member jazz band to play free for us and got lots of food donated for the dinner as well as a few raffle prizes. I was really overwhelmed by the generosity of our community and our church.
"The Dixie Nuts" With the dimmed lights, our fellowship hall really did have some atmosphere, you can't really tell in the picture.
