The “Blessing of the Animals” made the paper! Of course, it was a big story to us, but now the community knows about it.

Pictured is Jordan Williams with the family’s newest addition, Chico, bracing for his blessing from Rev. Marlene. Rumor has it that Chico is a master at tricks! Also, we see Jay with the Greene’s family dog, Oscar. Oscar has never missed a blessing and instructs the younger pups on how it’s done.

Be sure to join us next year with or without a pet or a dog for a doggone good time!
