Associates Weekend,
August 7-9, 2015

Engage, Expect and Enrich

At the recent Lake Junaluska Peace Conference the attendees were taught a song by Rabbi Sigal that says, “we live in your (God’s) abundance”. Come to Associates weekend with the expectation of being fully engaged with friends, old and new, with opportunities for learning how to share out of our abundance and to engage ourselves in the ongoing work of the partnership that we share with the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center. You can be assured that you will be enriched as you are entertained by the Lake Junaluska Singers on Friday evening. Please note that, following the Saturday morning business meeting, the reception for Chief Junaluska will held be at the J.B. Ivey Playground.

Come fully expecting an enetertaining Saturday evening with renowned local storyteller Donald Davis! It will truly enrich your weekend experience!
