Signing Choir Performs for Palmer Rotarians

Palmer Rotarians were visibly touched by a performance of the Matanuska Valley Adventist School (MVAS) signing choir on March 18. Neil Biloff, pastor and member of the Rotary Club, invited the students to perform at the club's weekly luncheon. The students signed to Ray Boltz’s “You Will Always Be a Child in my Eyes.” Biloff was fined for “blatantly promoting” the children from his own church school, but the fine was quickly waived as the children were such “angels.”

The children learn American Sign Language on Fridays as part of their regular curriculum. They have performed several times at the Palmer Church. They recently performed “Bow the Knee” with the church choir, a performance that left the congregation silent and in tears.
