On Saturday, April 21, 2018, Heritage UU Church transformed itself into Mount Olympus for the Gala of Benevolent Deities. Festivities included a harpist, a sumptuous Greek meal, spirits, fortune-telling by the Oracle of Delphi, storytelling of Greek myths, a musical performance, the theatrical performance of “Pyramus and Thisbe,” various games, a silent auction, a live auction, and “split the pot.” The festivities also included the celebration of the 60th birthday of our minister, Rev. Bill Gupton. A big “Thank you!” to all the volunteers who made this evening possible.
Guests were encouraged to come in the costume of a mythical god, goddess, or other creature or mythical person. Pictures of some attendees are shown below.
