3:00 pm General meeting to consider the current and future opportunities for the Park of The Pines. This will include the following:

5:30 pm Picnic dinner in the yard. Hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans and potato salad and all the trimmings.

The primary objective for the EXPO is to consider new opportunities for programs of ministry and to have a two hour period of time for a frank discussion on the needs and future of park.

There will be no charge for staying at the grounds for those persons who are willing to commit some time to working on the clean-up and maintenance activities. The noon and evening will be paid for with a free will offering. The suggested contribution for these two meals is $4.50 per person per meal.

Persons may want to say Saturday night and leave on Sunday morning. This may allow for some additional opportunities for fellowship and relaxation.

Please announce and share this letter and the poster with members of your congregation, encouraging them to attend this event.

Child care for young children will be provided.

Please contact Sandy Ecker at 231-547-0429 or if you want to stay in the lodge.
