We had a nice group that gathered last month to make cards. Jill Shea teaches the class and another session is scheduled for June 29th. This card making class is open to the public so make plans to come and enjoy the fellowship and card making! For more information, please call Shepherd’s Center at 507-263-2136.
I’d like to remind everyone about a trip to Nashville that’s coming up. This is a trip we took about 3 years ago and it was so much fun we decided to head back once again. The deadline to sign up is the 23rd of this month, so don’t delay! We’ll travel via a deluxe motor coach bus and see all the sights of Nashville. The cost for this 7 day, 6 night trip is only $619 and included transportation, lodging and 10 meals. We’ll stop by the Country Music Hall of Fame, enjoy a backstage tour of the Grand Ol’ Opry and of course attend the Opry. We’ll attend the Nashville Nightlife Theater, tour the Belle Meade Plantation and spend time in down town Nashville exploring lower Broadway. Don’t delay, space is limited so talk to your friends and sign up to come along! We leave Cannon Falls on August 30th and return September 5th. Later in the fall we’ll be taking a trip to San Antonio, Texas.
Financial support from the area is what keeps us going here at Shepherd’s Center. Thank you to all who have donated this past month. We did receive memorial donations in May honoring Francis Nelson and Char Althoff.
We’ve got a very special “Adventures in Learning” coming up June 26th at the East Side Park in Cannon Falls. We’ll feature a number of our four-legged friends with Pugs that are used for therapy dogs…a K-9 demonstration by one of Goodhue County’s K-9 officers and a presentation from the Goodhue County Humane Society. This outdoor event is free and lunch will be served following. It all starts at 9:30 a.m. on June 26th and if you plan to attend please bring a lawn chair and RSVP by calling Shepherd’s Center at 507-263-2136.
I had the distinct honor of speaking at this year’s Memorial Day Observation in Cannon Falls. I leave you this month with something I shared that day; “Today is a day to tell the stories of the soldiers of battlefields of decades past, so the soldiers of yesterday and today are never forgotten by the children of tomorrow.”
