The social was held on Saturday October 14th 2017 at Transcona Country Club. There were about 250 people in attendance and over 40 people who just bought tickets to support. We started the evening with the OOMPAH band led by Barry Shaw, we treated to a visit by Martin Luther, a lively sing a long rendition of “My My He’s a Lutheran Guy “a power point full of history and photos, the adventures of “FLAT LUTHER” and a surprise performance by Jessica’s Angels (Dance troupe) and then danced the night away with DJ Evan Irwin (Wavelength and Sound) who is from Abundant Life.
There was a 50/50 draw as well as fabulous Silent Auction Prizes and great food to top off the night. Thanks to the congregations of Sherwood Park, Abundant Life St. Luke’s Zion and Prince of Peace for their hard work, donations, baking, work at the tables and so much more that led to such a successful event. Especially a big thank you to the social committee for organizing such a great way to celebrate being Lutheran and our 500th anniversary.
We were able to raise over $2500 (including a $300 Grant from Faithlife Financial and a $250 grant from the MNO synod) Funds will be donated to the ELCIC Reformation Challenge (LWF Endowment Fund)
