Karaoke Night–Fun For All!

The second annual Karaoke night was a huge success! We had enthusiastic participation from young and old, visitors and members. I even caught the Snellville police officer tapping his foot! The food was yummy, the DJ lively and everyone who came had a great time. If you missed it this year, be sure to get it on your calendar for next year. A HUGE thanks of appreciation to Nancy, Oscar and the Fellowship team for another FANTASTIC event. Y’all ROCK!!
