Binghamton, New York Chapter
2009/2010 Organist Clergy Dinner
Monday, February 1, 2010, 6:00pm
First Presbyterian Union Church
111 Temple Street, Owego

Weather cooperating, we'll be getting together with many of the clergy with whom we work for dinner and a program on the first day of February. Our clerical associates (and their spouses, if they so wish) will be guests of the chapter. Our evening will begin with a cheese and crackers social at 6:00. The women of the church will be preparing our meal, to be served at 6:30.

The menu
Winter jewel Jello salad
Mandarin orange tossed salad
Chicken casserole
Green beans or buttered sweetened carrots
Hot roll/bread
Assorted desserts

Our palates satiated, we'll adjourn to the sanctuary for our program, a sort of "progressive hymn sing" sur- veying a selection of recent hymns from various denominational hymnals. Six of our members will each provide a bit of commentary on their selected hymn.
