Greetings and blessings to all past, present, and future Vintage Venture Campers:
Vintage Ventures (for anyone over 54 years old) begins on Monday, June 4th with departure on Thurs., June 7th — – after breakfast and farewell Communion Service. This year’s theme will be “Holidays”
Our various activities include: good food; good conversation; waterfront events (swimming, canoeing, kayaking– -weather permitting, (but we can hope for good weather!); jigsaw puzzles, communing with nature; sitting in rocking chairs on the wide porch and enjoying spectacular sunsets (and sunrises– -if you are an early bird!); perhaps movies; discussion groups; worship; easy games (or more strenuous ones if you are so inclined); listening to the laughter of the loons, and just plain FUN!!! However, we are flexible and you may pick and choose what interests you; participation is voluntary!
There will be a Yankee Swap, please bring ONLY ONE item already wrapped–perhaps something you might have an extra of, something practical or humorous, or whatever. Don’t spend a lot of money– -it’s just for FUN!
The fund-raising auction will reinstituted this year, but do not bring any more than two items to be auctioned. Auction items should also be wrapped.
Our special dinner will be a holiday-themed. Either dress to represent your favorite holiday or just carry a sign naming it. We also have a cook-out or “cook- in” in case of bad weather.
The “Talent-Un- talent Show” is also a lot of fun. Anything goes (perhaps holiday- themed)– -singing, dancing, poetry, stories, jokes, skits, playing musical instruments (bring your own– -if portable!), funny or more serious– -whatever!
Don’t worry about making a fool of yourself! Hopefully, the PL staff will again join us.
Campers will be encouraged to plan and lead in worship. There will again be a voluntary Bible Study using the lectionary lessons for the following Sunday. It will be very informal. Do bring inspirational material– -if you have it– – for worship.
If you’ve attended Vintage Ventures in the past and for some reason you’ve stopped coming, please come back this year as YOU’VE been missed. If you’ve never attended Vintage Ventures, please join us. You’ll have a great time of recreation, renewal, rest, and making new friends. We may be getting old in years, but we are definitely YOUNG AT HEART!
