Associates Weekend,
August 1-3, 2014

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 and the picnic will held be in a large tent between Stuart Auditorium and the Harrell Center, making for quick and easy access for the sharing of food and fellowship!

Come fully expecting a Saturday evening of exciting and most entertaining music by David Troy Francis, piano man ex-traordinaire! He will play classical, Broadway and rousing religious pieces! Included in the program will be Mark Morrales, a former Broadway musical performer. David and Mark have been working together for a year in preparation for presenting the Associates a most outstanding musical evening!!! It will truly enrich your weekend experience!

Come expecting to be renewed and inspired to claim “living in abundance” and then to generously go forth sharing that abundance with others!
