Dorsey High Alumni and former teachers enjoyed a Christmas party, Dec. 10th, at the Piccadilly in Hialeah. A event filled with camaraderie, hugging, conversing with classmates and singing Christmas carols. Included was an opportunity for former teachers to speak, such as Rev. Ulysses Morris, Baljean Smith and Dr. Charlie Williams. Kevin McNeir wore his ministers hat, last Sunday, at Ebenezer UMC where he led the morning prayer and sang My Soul is Anchored in the Lord, while Minister David Larmond, Sr. electrified the congregation preaching on Is God in your storm? He even excited two of his six boys in attendance with a thunderous climax. By Dr. Richard Strachan
