THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS
SMUG were invited back for the second year in a row to provide some Christmas music entertainment for the First Baptist Church's Christmas dinner for the locals who live around the church area. They arrived at 5:50 Sunday afternoon and were treated to Christmas turkey dinner with large helpings and all the trimmings to set it off. We had a large turn-out and finding the stage pretty tight with SMUGGERS, chairs and music stands. The highlight was the generous meal served to all of the Smuggers, complete with strawberries and ice cream. It's not often we get an opportunity to play for our supper, but it's kind of nice and we offer our thanks to the people of First Baptist and to Bob and Darlene for having us invited back. It was a hard venue to take photos, but a few are attached.

It was Jean's birthday. She sat in the front row, and as we were finishing up our program Hazel spotted a birthday tag attached to Jean, and we did it....we sang Happy Birthday to Jean!
It was SMUG's first Sunday performance at a nursing home and the very appreciative residents were out in full force; among them was Aunt Jessie, Derwyn Huestis, Tommy Knox and Guy Cameron, to name a few, who we talked to during the afternoon and seemed to be pleased to have Sunday entertainment.
SMUG did their final performance of the Summer 2011 program which has always been a big hit, especially with seniors in community homes. We did 20 selections in the hour-long performance which was graced by solos by Bob Acorn and Dennis Wells.
SMUG will be returning in two weeks to The Garden Home with a Christmas Program.
