There will be a time to honor two of our elders, who will be stepping down, and their families. On Sunday, June 14th, from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. we will have an opportunity to show our appreciation to Richard and Sandra Brown and Ed and Delois Smith and their children, Meghan and Alex.

The following are the plans to that day:

1)                                                                                                                          We will have a walk thru the FLC (gym) beginning at 5:00 with those who are at risk people and those older than 60. Then we will schedule people to go. Those with last names A – D go from 5:30 – 5:50; E – K attend 6:00 – 6:20; L – P coming from 6:30 – 6:50; and Q – Z may go from 7:00 – 7:20.

2)                                                                                                                          If you are unable to attend, you may record a message to them.

3)                                                                                                                          Instructions for the walk-thru: You will enter through the FLC (gym) glass doors. The Browns and Smiths will be on the stage area. (Feel free to bring cards/notes and there will be baskets for you to place them in.) There will be a place when you are exiting to record a personal note. All exiting will be through the kitchen/fellowship hall doors.
