A Columba Day to be Remembered

On Sun., June 11, 2017, we celebrated a very special edition of the annual Columba Day picnic to honor John Hurd's retirement from his music ministry of 23 years. It was a very full day of festive worship, praise and fellowship, with an outstanding play, great picnic, lively music from King Street Bluegrass, tributes to John, and yes, a few surprises. Many thanks to all who contributed their hard work to make this a standout day for St. Columba's.

One of the great tributes of the day was Ken DeCell's classic rendition of "Johnny B. Hurd" along with accompanying album cover
by Bob Erskine.
