Away Day at Norwood
It was a beautiful day in the lovely setting of Norwood, perhaps the first day of summer, weather-wise, and a group of us were treated to a day of entertainment from our Minister, Shannon, her husband, Doug, and their son, Brennan who was in charge of the technicalities.
We learnt so much about Louisiana, from the swamps and the marshes to the cities and buildings; from the native American Indian settlers, to the Spanish, the French, the Cajuns, the British and the Afro-Americans. We particularly enjoyed the Ten Commandments in Cajun! We listened to their music and heard about their food.
And so to lunch with Louisiana biscuits to follow.
After lunch Shannon told us about the church in Louisiana and in particular about the United Methodist Church to which she still belongs. She went on to describe Mardi Gras. We were given special coloured necklaces and joined in the singing of Oh When the Saints Come Marching In! What a wonderful afternoon. A big, big thank you to the DeLaureals!
