Valentine's Banquet

On Sunday, Feb. 11, the youth are hosting a Valentine’s Banquet to raise funds to attend two upcoming youth events.

VERITAS 2007 which will be held at the Fort Smith Convention Center the first weekend in March. This event is a mid-semester get away that offers youth from all over the state of Arkansas an opportunity for worship, fellowship, experiences, and relationships.
The other event is the West District Spring Rally, April 28-29 at Shoal Creek Camp.
Both events are sponsored by the Arkansas Council on Youth Ministries.

The youth have set a goal to raise approximately $1000.00 to help cover expenses for these events. So in order to help reach our goal, we invite you to attend our Valentine’s Banquet on Feb. 11 at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $10.00 per person.
The “Italian themed” evening will feature a dinner by candle light, complete with fine food, superior service (provided by the youth!), heart-warming entertainment, and all for a worthy cause. The evening will include a romantic slide show, so we ask you to share photos of you and your special someone. Please bring your photos to the church office by Jan. 28.

For the next two weeks the youth will be selling tickets following the worship service or you may contact the church office to reserve tickets. Tickets will be on sale until Feb. 8. Since seating is limited, please purchase your tickets in advance. There will be no tickets available at the door.

So, bring your Valentine or simply treat yourself to an evening out. We thank you for supporting the Waldron United Methodist youth.
