Stephen Jones thanked our hosts, John Wesley United Methodist Church, and Suzanne Coffman, who served as institutional liaison. Our Piccolo Spoleto intern, Austin, ably manned the registration table, and Suzanne Jones arranged most efficiently. We owe special gratitude to all the stalwarts who worked in the kitchen, and especially to Delynne Lilly, who coordinated the effort. Stephen led 347 as the final song, closed with prayer, and the class was dismissed.
