Senior Adult Spring Trip
White Memorial Senior Adults, Keenagers & Friends
April 27-30, 2015

Trip includes stops in Knoxville, Asheville, Beautiful Mountains, Secret City, Biltmore in Bloom and Grove Park Inn.

Keenagers is a fellowship group sponsored by WMPC and Raleigh Parks and Recreation, and is designed for adults ages 55 plus. Our membership drive is throughout September. The fee to join is $6 for the year. We meet on Thursdays, September - May, from 10:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. (Come around 10:40 a.m. for good parking as most of our Bible studies dismiss around 10:30 a.m.) Each week we begin with a short business meeting followed by a great program and devotional. At noon, we enjoy a hot meal served by the best cooks in Raleigh! The fee for lunch is $5. Usually the group takes a day trip to a place of interest once a month. We will take an overnight trip in the Spring.

The Senior Adult Committee has been studying ways to enhance the connections with our WMPC members with severe dementia.  We are in need of people who have gifts to serve in this area by visiting and/or creating new ways to send them our love.  Would you like to be a part of this endeavor?  Contact  Lindsay Jordan with questions or suggestions.
