The PFF 2018 Fall Retreat
Will Be Held
September 8, 2018
(Or from Friday to Sunday at your choice!)
Seven Springs Lodge and Retreat: http://sevenspringsretreatnc.com/
Yes Indeed! There’s more!
Technically, the half day would be from Saturday starting with a fresh hot-off-the-grill lunch at noon and ending with a delicious dinner at 6:00 with a short interesting program (and teen and kids programs at the same time) followed by three hours of free time for fellowship, and/or swimming, hiking, canoeing, fishing, singing, or snoozing.
But all that is only the planned half day. Friends who desire, may come on Friday afternoon or evening (or early on Saturday) to engage in all of the outdoor activities this retreat center has to offer including camp sites with showers and other amenities. So bring your tent and swimming suit!* Sunday morning will start off with a hot breakfast, more time to relax and visit, and end with a meeting for worship outdoors or inside as Friends would prefer.
Teen and Children’s programs.
This retreat center is a great site for youth. Hiking, swimming, and campfire building are all possible. A specific teen and children’s program are planned
Please let your Meeting Clerk know if you are planning to attend. There is no registration. Small donations for meals will be appreciated.
