Tickets are $22.00 per person (with a $90 maximum per family), which includes food, rides, and the water park. Congregations are once again being asked to gather money and reservations. Ticket sales MUST be done in advance using only tickets that are obtained from the Diocese. NO SALE OF TICKETS WILL BE PERMITTED AT THE PARK. Tickets may be ordered by a congregational representative, not individual members. Reservations from the churches must be to Vanessa at the diocesan office by noon on Monday, June 5th. Tickets will then be mailed to the churches.
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 youth ministry grants for our congregations (applications for this grant are available on the diocesan website).
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 service. Registration will resume and the food lines will open after the worship service is completed. Food will be available until 4:00 PM. You MUST have a wrist band to eat.
It is hoped and expected that those coming to the picnic would also attend the worship service at 11:00 AM. Bishop Sean will preach and celebrate.
Hope to see you at Waldameer!
Vanessa Butler is Canon for Administration of the Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania.
