Rooted Growing Branching

November Coffeehouse for Haiti

On the evening of Friday November 11 we had a coffeehouse in the church basement.  We used it as a fundraiser for Haiti, and as a chance to escape reality.  It was really quite nice, with quite a variety of performances.  The only downside was that the photographers only realized they should be using their cameras halfway through the evening, so we missed some wonderful accordion playing and story telling, sibling singing, and a future pianist.
