TI Anniversary—Picking Up Where We Left Off

When we began to plan for our congregation’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, we were mostly worried about the weather cooperating with us. Fortunately it did and all of our events were huge successes, with large attendance at all of them. But, we never, ever, anticipated that we would be affected by a pandemic which, literally, “shut down the world!”

With the hope of assuming some sense of normalcy, we are going to pick up where we left off and finish our celebrations, keeping in mind all precautions that the CDC recommends. So, instead of our 50th, we are now adding a “+2”.  Please mark all of the dates on your calendars and join us for these special events.

If you would like to help out, we would welcome your participation on any of our committees, and if you would like to help to sponsor an event, we are still accepting donations as well. Just email me for more details.

I am looking forward to seeing you at many or all of our upcoming “50th+2” events.
