The Rutledge Choir sang at the Rutledge Center’s annual Christmas dinner.

The dinner was held Dec. 11 at the McEntire Pavilion at the Newnan Utilities cabin. The annual event brings together clients, staff, board members and supporters of the workshop program for mentally handicapped adults.

Following a turkey-and-dressing lunch, the choir sang — comprised of Rutledge clients — under the direction of staff member Lorna Kitchens. Everyone attending the lunch was encouraged to sing along.

Then gifts were presented to each client.

Bobby Welch, executive director of Rutledge, expressed thanks to board members and supporters.

“We appreciate your support. This couldn’t happen without the support of the community,” he said.

Welch talked about the center and how it has been and continues to be “a very significant part of the lives of many individuals.”

The center program has staff who “care a great deal about individuals,” he said.
