They called it “A Starry, Starry Night”, and it was indeed. Even though the Appreciation Night Dinner was put on to honor and thank the individuals, businesses and organizations, the “stars” in the Mechanicville and Stillwater communities who unfailingly support the community service activities of the All Saints on the Hudson Youth Council, perhaps the real “stars” of the evening were the youth council members and leaders themselves. The young people, teen-agers all, welcomed the guests as they arrived, ran the program, served the beverages, waited on tables, and cleaned up when it was over.
The South Campus Parish Center was beautifully decorated with bright stars on blue. As he began his invocation, Rev. Thomas Morrette, pastor of All Saints on the Hudson, commented that “this is a community of caring and sharing”.
