06 Aug Dillman UB Performs Patriotic Musical
Linda Walters from Dillman UB church (Warren, Ind.) sent this news item.
The Dillman Community Choir presented the musical “Liberty” at the College Park UB church on Sunday, July 8. The program was a patrotic tribute to God and country. The musical contained songs that made you laugh out loud and also songs that made you cry.
The program began with flag carriers bringing in both the American and the Christian flags, followed by the veterans who were not all able to walk on their own. There were many solos and duets and just great music by the 33-member choir. We sang of Yankee Doodle and Dixieland. The all-men Joy Choir of Dillman sang the Statue of Liberty, by Neil Enloe. The narration spoke of good times in our country and of bad. When the song God Bless the USA was sang, the participation of the audience was electric.
Of course one of our favorite parts of the program was when we had the salute to the Armed Forces. The military men in uniform were breathtaking. The final song was ” Pledge My Allegiance,” which included the choir, children, the veterans, the flag carriers, the military, and a fireman and a policeman. God truly blessed our program that evening. We at Dillman want to thank College Park for sharing their sanctuary with us.
