I was hoping to get to the Beaver Meadow Chapel last Sunday, however another commitment kept me away. I did ask if someone could take some photos of the event I would do a short story. Special thanks to Chad Finer for supplying me with these photos. It looks as though I would have a hard time finding a parking space as the parking garage was full and people started parking on the street. All kidding aside, I think I missed a nice event. Here are the facts about the event and a video for your listening pleasure.

Reception After the Event: there was a reception at the Chapel following the event with a variety of desserts and refreshments
As you can see from the pictures, the event was quite successful and fairly well attended, pretty much filling the Chapel.
And the band played on
They look like they know the words even
Nice little Chapel
The crowd is facing the music
Looks like a good turnout
This photo was taken with a view from another pew
Looks like they are really having a grand ole time of it
They are keeping up the pace and are in sync
Taking it all in
