Boomers: The Gathering

TODAY, 5:00 pm, Veterans Park

Come join us for a picnic in Veterans Park.  The entrance to Veterans Park is off of Southpoint Boulevard, and we will be at Shelter #4. In the event of rain, we will meet in  the FAC Gym!  Regardless, we will have good fun and fellowship (would you believe a CORN HOLE TOURNAMENT??). Fried chicken and beverages will be provided.  You bring something else to make our meal—enough for you plus one.  (Don’t everybody bring dessert!)

 

Nominations

The Nominating Committee welcomes nominations from the congregation for certain leadership positions. Any active member of First Alliance may nominate any other active member by completing a “Nomination Form”, which can be found at Guest Services. Return the completed form to the Church Office by May 22. The annual meeting and elections will be on June 11.
