To the Jackson County Times
On behalf of the First United Methodist Church, the First Presbyterian Church and the Presbytery of Florida I would like to thank you very sincerely for all of the fine publicity which you gave to the visit of the Siyaya Group from South Africa to Marianna on Thursday, July 17. Thanks to your efforts, and those of others in the community, the Wesley Center at the First United Methodist Church was almost filled to capacity for their performance.
Marianna had the distinction of being the smallest community in which they performed on their six week tour of the United States. Thanks to everyone’s support, though, we did not have the distinction of having their smallest audience, or the smallest offering that they received. Marianna can be proud of the welcome extended to these very talented singers and dancers. Thanks again for all that you did to help our community give them such a warm reception.
Huw Christopher Pastor,
First Presbyterian Church, Marianna
