Celebrating Life

      Traditionally Right to Life-Lifespan has held their Celebration of Life Dinner & Silent Auction on the Tuesday before Mother’s Day and this year the date fell on May 8, 2018.  Fr. Michael Green and Br. Mark Orcutt attend this function annually which is held at the San Marino Club in Troy.  The silent auction was open most of the evening and contained many options to choose from.

     Following the Pledge to the Flag, the signing of “God Bless America” and Invocation, those in attendance were served a delicious dinner which was enjoyed over conversation.  This year the after dinner entertainment was Comedian Jeff Allen.  Jeff is one of a dying breed of “clean comedians”, whose material centers around marriage and living with teenagers.  Although a fun filled evening was enjoyed by all who attended the event, we cannot forget the real reason for the gathering: to celebrate life from its conception to its natural end and the need to protect it during all its stages.
