Sunday, January 19th and the long awaited PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH SERVICE AT ST MARK'S. The group was well rehearsed and flawless as we performed the attached program put together by Rev. Paula Hamilton and Ron Tallon.We were accompanied on the piano by the Church's Organist, Jacqueline Sorensen Young. Both the congregation and the clergy were more than welcoming to us as we ploughed through a fairly involved program. Unfortunately this will be the last appearance of Ron Tallon with SMUG, as Ron takes off to live in Nova Scotia the middle of March. How fitting though, that we should perform at his beloved church on his final appearance. Ron was one of the charter members of SMUG when we really began in the spring of 2008.  Rev. Tom suggested that we might return to St. Mark's down the road if Ron would agree to come along and join us. Let's hope that will happen. It was great to see so many old friends in this congregation as well.

My personal apologies to both of the clergy for taking photos from behind, but that is where I was sitting and it couldn't be helped, unless we take along a professional photographer with us! Rev. Tom spoke very warmly about SMUG, and Ron, on this our second appearance at St Mark's. When he was explaining the SATURDAY MORNING UKULELE GROUP (SMUG) to the congregation I couldn't help but think we might consider SUNDAY MORNING UKULELE GROUP as we have done so many Sunday morning services this past year. Thanks to everyone for their great effort. It's great when you get it right!~
