Summer, Here We Come!
It is hard to believe that we are getting so very close to the beginning of Summer. Here are some things to keep in mind as we get ready for warmer weather.
One of the highlights of the last month of the school year at Immanuel in Greenville is the presentation of the school musicals. This takes place on Friday, May 3 at 9 AM (with fellowship beforehand) and 6:30 PM. The K-3 students will be performing the musical Pirates. Some colorfully bearded pirates discover a stowaway on board! The students in grades 4-8 will present Dig it! which explores the exciting world of archaeology. All are invited to come and enjoy these presentations.
Fox Valley Lutheran High School has a number of musical offerings for you to enjoy this month. On Wednesday, May 8 at 6:30 PM, the students will take place in the spring Frolic talent show. This night of entertainment also includes the crowning of the prom king. On Sunday, May 12 at 6:00 PM, all the vocal and instrumental acts of FVL will be presenting their final concert of the year in the FVL auditorium. The final, final concert will actually take place on the Monday of that week (May 13) at 7:00 PM when the Jazz Ensemble and Choraliers will be having their concert. The final, final, final FVL musical presentation for the school year will be on Monday, May 27 at 9:00 AM when the FVL marching band will be performing in the Appleton Memorial Day parade.
Speaking of Memorial Day, there will be a ceremony for Memorial Day on Sunday, May 26 at 11:45 AM in the Ellington Union Cemetery. This ceremony includes poems, songs, and patriotic readings. The highlight is the laying of a wreath on the grave of a local veteran.
FVL has its graduation service on Saturday, May 25 at 10 AM. Emily Lillo from our congregation will be graduating. Immanuel has its service on Tuesday, May 21 at 7 PM. Cadyn Voight will be graduating in this service.
We will be having a work day at St. Paul’s on Saturday, May 18, starting around 9:00 AM. We will be removing the current siding of the church so that we can install new, durable siding later in the month. If you plan on helping, please come with hammers and crow bars.
