William F. Wilkins, affectionately referred to as “Bill,” was a long time active member of Emmanuel’s choir and had a deep appreciation for music. It is a tribute to his memory that All Season’s Chamber Players will perform at Emmanuel and that the concert will raise much needed funds for CFA. CFA is 501 (c)(3) organization that provides emergency food and homelessness prevention services to northern New Jersey’s poorest and most vulnerable residents.
