I have several items for your calendars this evening. Please note that none of these is THIS weekend but begin in the week beginning Monday.
Monday, May 29, at 10:00 am is the Memorial Day observance at the Fallen Heroes Monument in Zion's cemetery.
Thursday, June 1, is Billy's 65th birthday! You are inviting to our house on June 1 at 6:30 pm for birthday cake. No gifts, please, but food items for Plenty! would be great.
Saturday, June 3 at 7:00 pm is the kick-off performance of the 2017 Oak Grove season. We'll start with a bang with the White Top Mountain Band, a family group from the White Top area of Virginia. Their old time music is guaranteed to get your toes tapping; come and see how quickly the dance floor fills up with the first notes of their first number!
The schedule continues with these great shows:
June 24--Stone Canyon
July 8--Carrie Hinkley & Virginia Hollow
22--Zephyr Lightning Bolts
Aug 18,19,25, & 26--The Zion Players
Sunday, June 4, we'll gather for a joint Pentecost worship service at the home of the Motleys at 10:30 am. Our worship will be followed by a meal; hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided by the parish. If you are able, please bring a side dish or dessert.
Billy and I will be leaving after worship on Sunday to visit our daughter Maggie in Louisville KY. We'll be back on Tuesday. If you need to reach me, please email or call my cell phone number: 540-553-1289.
Virginia Neukirch (Zion) is still in Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. She is slowly recovering from surgery to remove a ruptured appendix. She requests no visitors at this time and is hoping to come home in the next couple of days. Let's keep her in our prayers.
