On Tuesday evening, July 24, at Immaculate Heart Of Mary Catholic Church, Hayesville, North Carolina a musical event featuring performances of inspirational, sacred, and Broadway compositions was held to benefit the Madelyn Lea Memorial Scholarship Fund. Annually, a deserving Hayesville High School student is the recipient of this lovely award - this year's scholarship winner is Bethany Anderson. Bethany sang "In My Dreams" from the musical, Anastasia, and "Someone Like You" by Adele. Her performances were both captivating and endearing. Bethany will be attending Saint Ambrose University, Davenport, Iowa and it is there that she will continue to pursue her musical dreams.
Following the inspirational evening of musical performances, a reception was held in "The Sister Terry Martin Community Center" adjacent to Immaculate Heart Of Mary Catholic Church. And, for several hours parishioners of IHM, community members far and wide, and out-of-town visitors enjoyed uplifting conversations and shared delicious homemade baked goods. The Immaculate Heart Of Mary Catholic Church Community has been a very heartfelt part of our family for many years...this dedicated community has been our saving grace.
For the next several weeks, our family will be keeping company with our dear neighbors and friends here in Hayesville, North Carolina, and all along we will be knowing how fortunate we are.
