The Goldenheirs’ July meeting proved to be colorful and patriotic. - photo by photo submitted
Much red, white and blue was evident at the July 3 meeting at Goldenheirs.
Director Elaine Walker led the patriotic presentation by the Jubilee Choir of First Baptist Church’s patriotic presentation. Rodney Powers served as the pianist.
John Stetyer opened the program with a devotional on John 15:16-17, stressing loyalty to the flag and country.
The Jubilee sang “Dem Bones,” followed by an amusing skit by George and Joyce Laseter on witnessing. The choir then sang “One by One” and “Carry On” and led the entire group in “My Country Tis of Thee.”
Frances Smith recited a long-remembered poem, “The Unknown Soldier.”
The program's grand finale was a beautiful piano rendition by the very talented Powers.
Jubilee Choir is a senior group at First Baptist led by Walker and Vicki Ackermann, and pianists Betty Danham and Powers.
During the Goldenheirs' June meeting, Margie Love led the program with a very interesting book review on “The Dwelling Place” by Erskine Clark. It’s a true history of Liberty County’s plantation life including slavery, from 1805 to 1869. The book is available at the museum in Midway.
Love serves as vice president of the Liberty County Historical Society.
Goldenheirs is a senior group that meets the first Tuesday of each month at First Baptist in Hinesville. All seniors are invited to attend a covered-dish lunch at noon. The next meeting will be Aug. 7. The program will feature the “Holiday Family,” a local musical group.
