October 1 dinner at 6:00, program, free time [Becky is our “game queen,” and she usually has a couple of them to play; however, you don’t have to do that. You may do whatever you like — many of us just sit and talk If you knit or crochet, bring it with you. There’s time.]
October 2 breakfast at 8:00, then program, lunch on your own and free time in the afternoon to do what you like, 6:00 dinner, followed by a program
October 3 breakfast at 8:00, followed by a short program, then Communion, and we head home.
What to Bring:
Bring your Bible — I will provide notebooks and pens and anything else you will need for the study
Wear comfortable clothes — it’s a lodge atmosphere
Bring a wrapped gift, less than $15.00 or so, for exchange on Saturday night [anything is fine, I sometimes get something that I’d like to have!]
If you want snacks, please bring wrapped cookies, etc. Because of COVID guidelines, we won’t have the usual open bags/containers. Some folks also bring bottled water, soft drinks, etc. Unfortunately, we can’t have margaritas!
If you want to share a brief devotional before the programs, let me know.
We are not providing registration forms this year, so when you decide, just let Becky Griffin know and she will register for you. You may also give her the check. Please make the check to Morrow First UMW and mark “retreat.” Deadline: 9/26/2021
I hope that you will join us. We will adhere to Hinton’s guidelines for social gatherings, face masks, etc. The cafeteria staff will plate the food and serve to us.
