150th Celebration

Most of our 150th events are “intergenerational” – meant to be enjoyed by children, teens, and adults.  A few are more specific – the Victorian Tea for women and girls; the beard contest for men; the pre-concert pizza party for teens; and the children’s parade and magic show.  Of course, we hope that even if you’re not IN a parade, you’ll be watching it.

Here is what happens during the two weeks:  (Remember, this is in addition to all our regular Campmeeting services and activities.)
