On Saturday morning many City residents braved the cold to attend the 46th Annual Mayor's Community Prayer Breakfast. In addition to Mayor Gahan and his family, the event was also attended by two former New Albany Mayors, Bob Real and Warren Nash. Andrew Takami was the MC for the event and special music was provided by the Trinity UMC Praise Band and Steve Crews. The breakfast was provided by All About Taste.
The Keynote Speaker is Mike DiGuiro, a secretary of the Trent DiGiuro Foundation, a charity established in his son's name to raise funds and provide scholarships to students in Oldham County, KY. Trent, a U of K football player was shot and killed as he sat on his front porch, three days shy of his 21st birthday, on July 17, 1994. Mike's story is one of tragedy, faith and inspiration.
The Mayor's Community Prayer Breakfast is a long-standing tradition held at the beginning of the holiday season that gives our community the opportunity to unite citizens of all ages and faiths. We come together to celebrate the diversity within God's family and to give thanks for the blessings of our community and its people.
