HERITAGE DAY CELEBRATION 2013
Sunday September 22th is the 12th annual Heritage Day Celebration at First English Lutheran Church. It’s an exciting day for First English as we gather to share our heritage as Lutherans and Christians, and, raise money for organizations and/or persons in our community selected as recipients. All money raised at Heritage Day is divided between four selected recipients with the fifth portion remaining in our Community Assistance Fund to be distributed prior to the next event each year.
Heritage Day 2012 allowed us to distribute $44,000 or $8,800 to each recipient with the Community Assistance Fund being distributed over these months. Those recipients were The Vine School; Bluebonnet Youth Ranch; Victoria Christian Assistance Ministry; and Tanner & Bailey Fox Scholarship Fund. The fifth portion or Community Assistance Fund is being distributed throughout this year with donations to date given to the American Red Cross, Center for Peace (an enterprise of Perpetual Help Home) and Mindy Chambers Medical Fund. We will complete the distribution of this 5th portion before September 20, 2013.
Recipients selected for Heritage Day 2013 are:
• Golden Crescent CASA
• Victoria Young Life
• Future Sight, The Bartimaeus Foundation
• Boys & Girls Club of Victoria
We hope you will include us on your calendar of events for September 2013. We are very proud of our heritage and extremely proud of this outreach ministry of our church, First English Lutheran, 516 N. Main Street. Our worship service begins at 10 a.m. followed by a BBQ meal at 11 in Hiller Activity Center. The Live Auction starts at 12:30 with a Silent Auction, Cake Walk and Children’s Activities beginning at 11.
Thank you for being a part of our 12th Heritage Day Celebration by marketing this event! We hope you’ll join the fun, enjoy the delicious BBQ and be a part of the heritage created each year at First English Lutheran Church.
