The Diocesan Picnic at Waldameer is just around the corner. This great opportunity for worship, fellowship and fun will be held on Sunday, June 19, 2016
It is hoped and expected that those coming to the picnic will attend the worship service that begins at 11:00 AM. Bishop Sean will preach and celebrate.
On the day of the picnic, registration will be from 10:00 AM until 10:50 AM, and it is there that you will exchange your tickets for wristbands. There will be no registration during the time for worship. Registration will resume after the service.
Tickets are $22.50 per person (with an $80 maximum per family), which includes Waldameer, Water World, and a buffet lunch that will be available following the worship service until 4:30 PM. You must have a wrist band to eat. Children 3 and under are free but do need to reserve a ticket. Ticket sales MUST be done in advance using only tickets which may be obtained from the Diocese. No tickets may be sold at the park the day of the picnic.
Paul Nelson, former diocesan treasurer and owner of Waldameer, has again generously offered for us to keep all proceeds from ticket sales. The proceeds will be split into two accounts, with 60% of the proceeds being placed in a scholarship fund for Camp Nazareth and 40% of the proceeds becoming available for grants to our congregations to be used for youth ministries. Information on these grants are on the diocesan website.
Congregations are once again being asked to gather money and reservations. Reservations from the churches must be to Vanessa by noon on Monday, June 6th. Tickets will then be mailed to the churches.
Hope to see you at Waldameer!
