Last night, I joined the end of the Brahms concert in the Chapel. It was amazing. The Baltimore Chorale Arts Society took beautiful music and performed it with real skill. The Music Director, Anthony Blake Clark, was remarkable. It was a musical feast.
Some of the members of the congregations were from the Class of 1968. They were holding their reunion. It is always an honor to welcome family back to the Holy Hill. As I often say, "Once you are part of VTS, you always part of VTS." So welcome home to the following members of our VTS family: Ernie and Roz Bennett, Ormond Beach, FL, Roger Bowen, Staunton, VA, Mike Coram, Ellicott City, MD, Buddy and Emilie Dugan, Altus, OK, Bob and Nancy Hobgood, Ocean Isle Beach, NC, David and Kay Jones, Burke, VA, Tim Parsons, Norway, ME, William Pike, British Columbia, Canada, Grady Richardson, Hoover, AL, Jo Tartt, Warrenton, VA, Arnold and Lilian Taylor, Washington, DC, Martin and Barbara Townsend, Springfield, WV, Jim and Kay Wilkinson, Louisville, KY.
This class spent last night eating together. For the rest of their stay, they are planning to join the community. So friends, please give them a warm welcome. One day, this will be you. Treat others as you hope to be treated.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
