Members and friends of Holy Neck United Church of Christ recently enjoyed their annual church picnic, which centered on a 1950s theme. The program included many celebrities singing and playing popular songs from the era.

Highlights of the night were the crowning of Ellis and Howard Holland Jr. as queen and king, and a visit from &uot;Elvis Presley&uot; himself.
