Our Sunday School children and several adults presented a home-grown Christmas program, "A Lake Beauregard Christmas" Sunday, December 15, at 4:00 PM.  Step into the village of Lake Beauregard, a town a few miles nort’west of Lake Itaska, a few miles sout’ of Canada, (hey), and the home of Thelma, Alvina, Hank, Mildred, and, of course, Cletis Thingvold. Join the gang at Thelma’s café for the chatter and even have Thelma serve YOU a bar or piece of pie! Meet Pastor Inqvist’s replacement at Galilee Lut’ran as well as the whole Sunday School as they try to put on the most memorable Christmas program ever in Lake Beauregard.
