A Big Thank You!

Good Shepherd’s float in the Titusville Christmas Parade was a huge hit. Our Choir was the only one with microphones! All involved had a great time although the candy ran out at the one-third mark of the route. Thank you to all who worked on the float and golf carts, those who walked the route, our choir and Ricky Hall, and those who donated the candy and who prayed for our safety and success.
