I first thank God for giving me the vision of an All White Extravaganza and allowing it to come to fruition for the 3rd year. In addition, I thank him for allowing each of you to return safely to your destination. As you read this message, hopefully every one of you are well rested from our four days of skating, dancing, swimming, karaoke, dancing, networking, connecting with old friends, connecting with new ones, more dancing, fellowship with everyone and having a good old Steppin' good time, at our 3nd Annual All White Extravaganza Weekend, capping all the Steppin, dancing and parting off with the First Annual Worship Service, Presided by Minister Vera Legree King .

I could not have put on such an extravagant event without the assistance and hard work of our committee, which consist of my Beautiful Committee Chair, Madelyn Saintclair and our Amazing Committee Members, Renee Brown, Deborah Carwise, Marsha LeBeau Tim, Kim Mowatt, Chazz Brown, Karen Brown-Rogers and a host of volunteers LeRosa Legree, Martin Carter, Sabrina Crawford, Pearl Ellison, Dida Hart, Myrlande Mondesir, Cammie Goss, Jacque Johnson, & Joan Hunter from both of my groups the Florida Steppers International and Jacksonville Jazzy Steppers,.

To Minister Vera LeGree King-Thank you for the Spiritual Sermon Sunday Morning at our First Annual All White Steppers Extravaganza Worship Service.

hymns, a, praise team (Carolyn Walker, April Smith, LaRosa Legree, Maria Cephas, and one  volunteer) and closing prayer. WELL!!!! ( in my deep heavy pastor voice) we had all  that and some. We had church up in there at the Marriott.
