ALL-CHURCH OUTING JUNE 10, 4:30, Twin Lakes Park
Come to Twin Lakes Park Sunday, June 10, if you like to play golf, or if you like to eat, or if you like music; for our next all-church outing you can come for all or some of the following: Our all-church all-ages outing will begin at 4:30 at the miniature golf course; we’ll form teams and play for fun.
After golf we will have a picnic supper at the tables nearby; you can “bring your own” or visit the concession stand, which offers a variety of sandwiches, snacks, cold drinks, and ice cream treats. And you may want to bring a lawn chair:
The Community Band Concert begins at 7 P.M. and lasts until about 8:30. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy each other’s company, right here in Paris. If you have any questions, contact a Membership and Evangelism Committee member or the church office.
