Penni’s program, “Challenges to the US Immigration System: Understanding the Issues with Refugees and  Undocumented Persons,” will feature a look at the historical background of US immigration to gain insights into important  issues currently facing our country today.

Fellowship begins at 11:15 a.m. with lunch at 11:30 in the Colhoun Room. The program begins at noon. The cost is $6.00. All are welcome.

Senior Trip to Kanuga

St. Paul’s Senior Adults will visit Kanuga Conference Center Thursday and Friday, May 25 and 26, staying at the recently renovated Kanuga Lake Inn.

The group will travel by coach bus, leaving the St. Paul’s parking lot at 8:30 Thursday morning and arriving at Kanuga in time for lunch. After lunch, group members can visit Connemara, Carl Sandburg’s home in nearby Flat Rock, or enjoy the afternoon on their own at Kanuga.

Mark Upright, Kanuga COO, will socialize with the group before dinner to give an update on the conference center. After dinner, the group will enjoy game night, featuring bridge, Chronology and other favorite card and board games.

Following breakfast at Kanuga Friday morning, the group will visit Western North Carolina Nature Center. Owned by the City of Asheville, the WNC Nature Center is dedicated to connecting people with animals and plants of the Southern Appalachians.

The group’s final stop before heading home is Phil’s Bar-B-Cue Pit in Black Mountain. The bus is expected to arrive back in Winston-Salem by 5:30 p.m.

The total cost for the trip is $200 (double room) or $238 (single room). To reserve your place, mail a check to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn, payable to St. Paul’s with “senior Kanuga trip” noted in the memo line, for the full amount or a deposit of $125 with the balance due Tuesday, May 4.
