In 2010, the Chorale received an exclusive invitation to sing for Easter Sunday services at the historic St.Thomaskirche in Leipzig, Germany, the home church of J. S. Bach. The choir followed up this honor with a world-premiere performance at Lincoln

ON JANUARY 27 at the River Grill, Ed Meyers First Responders dedicated an AED device in memory of the late George Goodwin, who was a first responder in SLV for eleven years. Many friends came out to see the dedication and support Becky. This device will be placed in the hallway at the River Grill.•

Family of Warriors is a story of courage and valor, integrity and loyalty, and fortitude and perseverance. You will meet five brothers who serve in five different combat areas during World War II and about their love for their country and for their fellow soldiers. You feel the mother and father’s love for their warrior sons and you see how ordinary people answered the call to serve their country by running toward the sound of the guns; not away from the devastating sounds. These men did not serve for riches or for wealth. They did not serve for fame or notoriety. They served because it

was their duty to their country. They served because it was the right thing to do. Ed De Vos, a highly decorated military officer, is an experienced writer of thought-provoking historical fiction. In the summer of 2006, Ed and his wife, Susan, moved to McCormick, South Carolina where he now spends the majority of his time on writing Christian historical novels. Family of Warriors is his fourth book. His earlier publications are The Stain, The Chaplain’s Cross, and Revenge at Kings Mountain, published in 2015. Ed loves sharing his passion with others by speaking to interested groups.•
