An Evening in Holland dinner and show for the Sun Lakes Community Church took place in the Arizona Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club featuring the Valley Christian High Chorale. It was a huge success with more than 140 tickets sole. Herm Westfall was the MC. John Bekkering, born in Holland, opened the program with the Lord’s prayer in Dutch and then told a story. The youth and energy of the Valley Christian High Chorale led by Marianne Heim and Joanna Banta was on display and energized the crowd. Beauty and the Beast and The Sound of Music were the biggest hits among the many songs that they sang.

Freddy VandeKamp, social chairperson, put this outstanding show, complete with Dutch decorations, together with the assistance of Kathleen and Jim Trenam, Nancy Hicks, Herm and Rachel Westfall, Marilyn Spack, Norma DeHaan, John and Gloria Bekkering, Genevieve Weiss and Butch Hall.
