CANCELLED – Retirement Celebration: Directors of Laverne Griffin Youth Recreation Camp

March 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am

Cancelled retirement party

Honoring Faithful Service

Saturday, March 21, 2020
Laverne Griffin Youth Recreation Camp

Walter, Sherry, and Andy Chastain have served the campers and churches of Alaska through the ministry of Laverne Griffin Youth Recreation Camp (LGYRC) for the past 14 years. 2020 will mark their closing season as they take on the role of advisors to our new directors, Tyler and Carrie Canup, and their family.

There is no way to describe the contribution to gospel ministry in Alaska made by the Chastains, and which will continue for generations to come. The difference they have made in the camp and their impact on its potential for the future are unmatched in the camp’s history.

PLEASE join us as we honor them with a time of reflection and recognition, an introduction to the new staff, and a tour of the camp (weather permitting.)

Open House Begins @ 10:00 a.m.
Recognition @ 10:30
Bring a dish for POTLUCK LUNCH (drinks provided)
Tour of the Camp following

You may be aware that Walter and Sherry have already begun the hard work of prepping some land for their future home. We encourage you to assist them in this effort with a financial gift through LGYRC. Please be generous as they have been generous to Alaska and camping ministry through Laverne Griffin Youth Recreation Camp.
