DDB Appreciation Dinner in Dix Hills, NY

Approximately 60 people attended the New York City Deanery’s 2020 DDB dinner last night at St. Andrew’s Church in Dix Hills, NY. It was a serene, picaresque day as the sun was setting and the attendees began to arrive. Host pastor, Fr. John Klingel, welcomed the guests, many of whom took the opportunity to visit the church temple to see its beautiful iconography and stunning, newly refurbished copper-clad cupola.
