Senior Adults to Visit Civil Rights Museum

St. Paul’s Senior Adults will take a day trip to Greensboro on Friday, August 31, to visit the International Civil Rights Center & Museum for a docent-led tour.  The museum is an archival center, collecting museum and teaching facility devoted to the international struggle for civil and human rights. It celebrates the nonviolent protests of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins that served as a catalyst in the civil rights movement.

The group will eat lunch at Lucky 32 before returning to Winston-Salem.

The bus will leave the St. Paul’s side parking lot at 8:45 a.m. To reserve your place, send a check, payable to St. Paul’s with “Senior Trip” noted in the memo line,  for $20 per person to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn. The check covers transportation costs and admission to the museum. Lunch will be at your expense. Contact  Anne at arahn@stpauls-ws.org or (336) 723-4797.

La bohème

St. Paul’s Senior Adults Ministry will take a group to see and hear Piedmont Opera’s production of Puccini’s La bohème at The Stevens Center of the UNCSA on Sunday afternoon, October 28.

A passionate, timeless story of love among young artists in Paris, La bohème is among the world’s most popular operas. Depicting the joys and sorrows of love and loss, the opera reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.

The group will meet in the side parking lot at St. Paul’s at 1:30 p.m. and travel by bus to The Stevens Center. To reserve your place, send a check for $62 per person to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn. Contact Anne at (336) 723-4797 or arahn@stpauls-ws.org.
