The Ida Whiteside Guild held their annual Christmas dinner on December 8. Co-Coordinators Carol Skiff and Wanda Gay handled the arrangements for the delightful party. Fellowship Hall was beautifully decorated by SandraHerbst, Sally Infante and Margaret Dixson. Wanda Gay made party favors for each guest, in the form of beautifully tatted snowflake ornaments.


A total of 23 women of the church and friends attended the event. About 30 pairs of socks were collected. The socks are given to the elementary school nurse for distribution to children in need.

A delicious meal of clam chowder and vegetable soup with a selection of tasty sandwiches was catered by Sally's Cafe in Schuylerville. Equally delectable desserts were provided by Lynne Nunnikhoven of Grandma Miller's Bakery in South Londonderry, Vermont. 

usical entertainment for the evening was provided by three teenagers who performed in the Annie Jr. musical at the High School. They were Caroline Murray, Ginny Edinger and Annie Roome. They did a fabulous job!

All women of the church are welcome to join in the many activities, bible studies and fellowship that the Guild offers.

Coffee House/Open Mic Rocks the House

posted Jan 26, 2010, 8:28 AM by Christopher Fitz

About 25 folks joined us for our semi-annual Coffee House/Open Mic night on November 28. From what we could tell, a good time was had by all. In Galilee played a number of songs, with Warren Wright-Sedam joining them for a couple of numbers. I'll Fly Away, a song played in the film Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, proved very popular. 

Other performers who joined us included Lisa Towne, Bob Warren, and Tim and Jim Robinson

We gave all proceeds from concession sales at the Coffee House to the Greenwich Food Pantry. Thanks to the generosity of our event goers, we also were able to give the food pantry a full basket of food. 

Thanks to those who donated baked goods to our efforts, including Mary LeBarron, Carol Skiff, Jackie White, the Wevers, Christopher Fitz, and the Laphams. We want those recipes for the cookbook, bakers! 

We will have another Coffee House in the spring. Hope to see you then
