Full of joy and smiles, members splendidly cladded in their anniversary T-shirt danced and waved handkerchiefs to show their appreciation to God for the milestone.
Speaking on the anniversary theme, “Thanksgiving”, Mrs Vivian Danso Dodoo underscored the importance of thanksgiving. She said no matter where and the situation we find ourselves, we should always acknowledge the good things the Lord has done for us and be thankful.
