Winter Solstice Potluck
The Fahs Room was filled to capacity for the second joint HAGSA/AOF Winter Solstice Potluck event. The event's entertainment included Ted Gangursky, playing Broadway tunes on the piano, Anatole Lubovich (followed by others) "saying grace," Paul Geisert singing "Solstice Tribute," by Dan Barker, to the tune of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" (with Mynga Futrell mucking up a bit on the keys) and "A Humanist International Anthem," by N. Macdonald, to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne" (with Mynga Futrell doing somewhat better on the keys), and Anatole Lubovich reading his poem, "Noël."
The pièce de résistance was a very funny skit called "Direct Dial to God" (see photograph below), starring Paul Geisert as the narrator, Cleo Kocol as "Older Woman," Ken Nahigian as Father Faultfinder, Jerry Sloan as Bishop Beat-um-up, Tom Nicolette as God, and Mynga Futrell as Atheist Annie. The skit's story was one of logic winning out over illogic, with Atheist Annie saving an older woman from the clutches of the Holy Romantic Church of the Redeemer.
