Sharing Our Stories
Coordinator: Judy Hakanson Smith, Deacon & Calumet Staff
This fall retreat, now called "Retired/Newly/Nearly Retired Rostered Leaders and Spouses Fall Retreat", is an opportunity for the New England Synod’s retired pastors & deacons and their spouses (and those who are nearing retirement or even thinking about retirement!) to come together in fellowship during the beautiful fall month of September....and a chance to get away to beautiful Camp Calumet for a few days where meals are deliciously prepared and absolutely no dishes to wash at all!
This year our theme session will be on sharing our own stories. Guest writer, Babara McEvoy, will guide us at her local art gallery in Freedom VIllage in reflecting and thinking about stories and memories in our lives. Our afternoon field trip will be to Wolfeboro to the Wright Museum where we will experience a pictoral exhibit on WW II verterans' stories. Then...we must stop for ice cream!!!
All rostered leaders & spouses, retired, nearly retired or not yet retired are welcome to attend this fall retreat. Opportunities for book chats, pontoon boat rides on beautiful Ossipee Lake, swimming and kayaking, walks along the beach and trails, hymn sings, and gentle yoga all will be available. Rates include all meals and two nights lodging.
