Civitan Club of Salisbury holds Clergy Appreciation Day

The Civitan Club of Salisbury held its annual Clergy Appreciation Day program at the Country Club of Salisbury on Feb. 7. with the Rev. Bill Adams presiding.
Every year, Civitans around the world celebrate Clergy Appreciation Week during the first week of February, reflecting on the sacrifice of four Army chaplains during World War II.
These four men of different faiths (one Catholic, one Jewish, and two Protestant) worked together in a great hour of need and made the ultimate sacrifice in helping to save others.
Civitans honor them during Clergy Appreciation Week by recognizing the service of their own local clergy.
Guest speaker for the program was Pastor Harold Jordan, chaplain at the newly constructed Glenn A. Kizer Hospice House.
Pastor Jordan presented insightful comments about the importance of ministers in service to others.
Minister guests at the meeting who were recognized: Kellie Browne, Josh Grizzle, Carol Hallman, Jim Harris, Whayne Houghland, James King, Randy Kirby, Danielle Kosanovich, Mark Murphy, Russ Pierce and Craig Sigmon. In addition, ministers in the club were also recognized, including Bill Adams, Eric Faust and Malcolm Bullock.
Fourteen ladies from Boyden High School’s class of 1962 met for lunch at D.J.’s Restaurant on Feb. 5.
This was the first meeting, but the group plans to meet periodically in the future.
Those attending from Salisbury included Margie Kirk Sides.
