This year's Appreciation Dinner took place on Saturday, February 29, from 6 pm to 8 pm. Pastor Steve and Dona hosted the congregation to a meal consisting of tossed salad, both meat and vegetable lasagna, garlic bread, cheesecake, and chocolate cake. The room was beautifully decorated with new centerpieces created by Marissa Sams, and the dinner came off right on time due to the help of Helen Ledbetter, Janet Moore, Elizabeth Lear, and Mindy Faulkner.
After dinner, the group was entertained with a time of musical entertainment presented by Pastor Steve and Dona, in which they performed nostalgic songs from many years ago. Several members indicated later that these songs took them back in time and brought back many memories for them.
This evening was in appreciation of the love and support that Maineville UMC members have given to their pastor over the last year, and it seemed that "a good time was had by all!"
