On Wednesday, June 19, St. Paul’s Senior Adults will welcome as speaker Jackie Alexander, Artistic Director of the National Black Theatre Festival.
Alexander will offer a preview of this summer’s festival, July 29 through August 3, featuring more than 100 performances in venues throughout Winston-Salem. Highlights will include live theater, films, seminars, a teen poetry slam and a star-studded celebrity gala.
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. No reservations are necessary. All are welcome.
St. Paul’s Senior Adults Ministry will sponsor a three-day, two-night trip to Trinity Episcopal Center on the Outer Banks Wednesday, October 16 through Friday, October 18.
The trip will feature lunch at the Chef and the Farmer in Kinston, a walking and bus tour of historic downtown Beaufort, the choice of a coastline cruise or a visit to the North Carolina Maritime Museum and a tour of Tryon Palace in New Bern.
The coach bus will leave St. Paul’s parking lot at 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday, arriving in Kinston in time for lunch. Upon arrival at the 62-acre Trinity Camp, Conference and Retreat Center in Salter Path, there will be opportunities for walking on the beach, socializing, dining and playing games.
The group will spend Thursday touring historic Beaufort by foot and bus. After a waterfront lunch at The Spouter Inn Restaurant & Bakery, group members may choose to enjoy either a coastline cruise on Miss Crystal Coast with Captain George or a visit to the North Carolina Maritime Museum.
After breakfast on Friday, the group will go to New Bern to visit Tryon Palace and tour the palace, kitchen, stable and formal gardens. There will be box lunches on the bus, which will arrive back in Winston-Salem by 6:00 p.m.
The total cost for everything is $405 (double room) or $475 (single room). To reserve your place, send a $200 deposit to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn, with the balance due by Sunday, September 1. Anne asks that you register early, as it greatly helps with room reservations at Trinity Center.
