To The Editor:
I would like to take the time to thank Mr. and Mrs. Al Gardner for their work in preparing a great gospel concert during our 50th Anniversary year here in Lehigh Acres. They spent many, many hours and days promoting the event from LaBelle to Bonita Springs, Cape Coral and the islands as well as promoting it on the East Coast.
I would also like to express gratitude for the 50th Anniversary Committee and their chair - Lisa Peters.
For the past 50 years, Faith has presented community concerts, community events and hosted forums for the public at large. One year ago in April, we hosted a concert raising money for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
On Sunday, Aug. 28, at our Gospel Concert $950 was raised for Red Cross Disaster Relief. The check was presented to the Red Cross last week. We fully expect to be presenting concerts for the public during the next 50 years.
Our local newspapers did a very fine job of covering the concert and giving accolades to the performers. It is always a great feeling to hear and see such excellent local talent. The audience showed their enthusiasm many times during the concert with loud applause and cheering.
We can't wait for our next concert endeavor here at Faith.
