Fifth Sunday Surprise Honors Ms. June!


Good Shepherd celebrated the decades of service and dedication of Mrs. June LeGuluche at the Fifth Sunday Celebration held on March 30, 2014. Ms. June has served the Body of Christ through numberous offices and organizations within Good Shepherd including being the church's long-time Council Treasurer.

I just wanted to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone for helping to make Mrs. June's retirement celebration such a success.  Under the direction of  the fearless leader of our Worship Committee, Mrs. Sharon Wetzel and all of her little worker bees  who participated in the preparation of the event, a special thank you. And of course a great big thank you to  everyone who attended the party and supplied all of the yummy dishes for us to enjoy helping to make it a  wonderful day of celebration and fellowship for all.
