It was another busy weekend for The Royalheirs. The first picture is of Jeff and Chuck being part of a scrap iron quartet (believe it or not...Chuck was singing the bass part!) at The Midwestern Christian Music Celebration in Portland, MI. This was the first year for the event and there were a lot of great groups there from different states that the guys had not had the pleasure of meeting in all their travels. It's always nice to meet new people and be blessed by their ministries. As you can see from the other photo, little Miss Hannah Hawks was also with us and was quite a trooper. We were there from 12:00 p.m. to approximately 9:00 p.m. and she lasted right up until the last half hour or so. Also with us on the bus trip to Portland was Bud Hardy and his wife, Marilyn. Bud helped to emcee the program.
On Sunday, Chuck and I were able to stay close to home (which was very nice) when the guys sang at Zion United Methodist in Capac. The congregation is such a friendly bunch of people and they hosted a potluck for everyone before the concert. We also celebrated two birthdays (Roy and Jerry) and an anniversary (Chuck and I). Poor Jerry was one tired guy! He had been on a missions trip to Brazil to help rebuild a church and had left to come home on Saturday, traveled all night and got back to Michigan on Sunday afternoon and then came right to the church to sing. That's dedication!
