The Purchase District One-Time “Make a Difference” Fund Raiser for the Lakeshore Building Campaign is drawing to a close. October 31 has been set as the final date to host an event. Groups of United Methodist Men, as well as United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) groups and others, have made this campaign a terrific success!
To date, 15 churches have participated in seven separate fund raisers, generating a total of $10,261.46 for Lakeshore United Methodist Assembly (LUMA).
The most recent group to add to the total was Lone Oak United Methodist. On September 23, Terri Bozeman and her group children, ranging in age from 6 –11, assisted by the Lone Oak United Methodist Women (UMW), raised over $800 for Lakeshore by hosting a spaghetti dinner at the church. This was one of our more successful events, and was the event that raised the grand total above the $10,000 mark! Thanks and congratulations to Terri and her gang for an outstanding effort!
If there are any groups who plan to host a “last minute” event in October, we may yet add to the above total. Contact Joe Burkhead with any information or questions.
Brother Gary Lawson, Lakeshore Director, and the rest of the staff and Board of Directors at LUMA, pass along their most sincere thanks for the efforts of those in the Purchase District who helped make this campaign a success.
