This very attractive and most professional presentation has received the highest acclaims by many viewers. The Grand Premier for the Friends was at the regular meeting of the Friends on September16, 2003. Since then the program has been shown many times on WSRE-TV and at many small and large public and private meetings, including Downtown Rotary Club
The Reverend Frank Beall, former pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church, lead the ecumenical service. He was assisted by The Rev. Robert Mills (First Baptist Church), The Rev. Alan Gantzhorn (First United Methodist Church), The Rev. Jack Gray (St. Anne's Catholic Church) and The Rev. Russell Levenson (Christ Episcopal Church). Judge E. P.

Like the 2001 and 2002 services this observance was inspiring and enriching, as well as colorful and well attended. (See pictures of this year's event & previous events at the All Saints Day page.
