Committee on Christian Work

The Committee on Christian Work Chairman introduced Barbara Anderson, Director of “All Hands In” a ministry supported in part by a grant from the Committee on Christian Work of the BBSU. Barbara shared how their ministry works to help women and girls escape from human trafficking. All Hands In is hoping to purchase a home in the Boston area to better serve these women. One way they raise support is to sell fair wage products.

Our Program

The Silver Leaf Jazz Band

The Silver Leaf Jazz Band (sometimes known as The Clam Bake Five) is a group of five talented musicians who specilize in traditional and Dixieland tunes(with a sprinkling of vocals), some familiar - some obscure - but all lively and entertaining.

The band personnel all belong to other groups and have many years of experience. Their playing blends together as one, but their backgrounds are numerous and varied.

Tom Ruggles, founder of the Silver Leaf Jazz Band, started as a drummer in Dixieland bands as a young man. He was active at Dartmouth College in the Glee Club and various bands. He is currently active with two quartets and seven bands, playing bajo and guitar. His professional career was in display and exhibit advertising. He live in Concord with his bride Janet, and is a confirmed chocoholic.

Members were thrilled with the rousing rendition of “When the Saints Going Marching In” as the meeting was coming to a close.
