We are very excited that your child will be joining us on our annual Fall Retreat.
We will be traveling by bus to Prindle Pond Conference Center in Charlton, MA (in the
Worcester area). We will be gathering at the Life House on Friday, November 27th at
8:00am. We will return to the Life House at approximately 11:30pm on Saturday,
November 28th. The cost of the retreat is $75. As always, if money is of issue for
anyone, please let us know. We never turn anyone away for lack of funds!
PARENT HELP NEEDED!
Every year on this retreat, our parents are responsible for the meals, which keeps
the cost of the retreat lower. WE ARE IN NEED OF PARENTS TO HELP OUT,
especially new parents! Parents are needed in cooking and serving meals at the retreat
center. Usually parents take a certain shift when helping, so whatever time you can give
is appreciated and needed. Please contact Susan Carter @ 617-462-4310 or by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance – this cannot be done without you!
