The Billy Graham Library calls Charlotte, North Carolina, home, and it is a beautiful place to visit. Members took a trip to see this iconic area library.

1. Elvis is Back!

To honor the incredible life that Elvis Presley lived, we invited Jeff Keener of Keener Entertainment for a performance we’ll never forget! He performed all of our favorites from Burning Love, Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, Can’t Help Fallin’ In Love, and Jailhouse Rock! Members were dancing along to every along to every beat!
