Life to Lead is looking for a host congregation to have a Christmas Sing-a-long fundraiser!
We are heading to Jamaica in March and are incurring some extra costs. We'd like to raise the funds the best way we can, by singing with the community!
Greetings all! Just a couple of announcements and reminders from Sanford Campground:
· Please remember to attend the board meeting and celebration on Monday, December 9th. We will be sending well wishes to Ida Yoder and her family as they move onto new opportunities and welcoming Joe and Kim Higgins as the new caretakers of the campground. The board meeting will take place at 6:30 PM and will be followed by the celebration at 7:00 PM.
· There are no planning meetings for Sanford Reunion or Memorial Weekend in December, but please mark your calendars for the Sanford Reunion Planning meeting on January 7th at 6:00 PM in the dining hall at the campground. Watch for future announcements regarding Memorial Weekend planning meetings.
· Watch your inbox and mailbox for Sanford Reunion registration forms! They will be available by the end of the week. Sanford Reunion is scheduled for June 20-25th and this year two new programs are being introduced! The first program is a monthly budget program starting in January where attendees can make lower monthly payments for their registration. Please let me know if you are interested and I'll be sure to get you more information ASAP! The second program is a refer a camper program, by referring a new camper (individuals are families that have either never attended or have not attended Sanford Reunion in the past 5 years), you will receive a discount off of your registration fee of $10 per individual and/or $25 per family. Discount will be given once the invited camper's registration is paid in full. More information will be included in the registration packet! Please note that these two programs are for Sanford Reunion only.
Thank you once again for your ongoing support of Sanford Reunion. Because of your generosity and support we are able to continue to offer programs that help to spread the peace of Jesus Christ. Blessings to all of you!
Live Christ's Peace,
