Memories of Mine

A tribute to our area's mining history is going to be built near United's parking lot retaining wall.  As many of you know, the boulders in the retaining wall are from the Old Bristol Mine area.  Therefore we are offering the opportunity for folks to make a donation to have a plaque attached to one of the boulders in memory of loved ones who once worked or were affected by the mining industry.  We are asking for donations of $100 - $400, depending on the size of the boulder you would like.  Print the following form and mail it  along with a check made out to United Lutheran Church:  Memories of Mine form

We are a church that rolls up its sleeves.  Lutheran Disaster Response is there helping those in need.

This annual community event is free! The bonus is there are prizes and an ice cream treat at the end!

We will be holding this event on Sunday, August 14, 2022 starting at 11:00 a.m.  We start out at the parking lot at United Lutheran and finish at Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp.  The bike path takes us all the way to Bible Camp Road, so it is a very safe event.  I have inquired about the availability of a school bus at the Iron County Medical Care Facility for anyone who wants to only do the first half.  The bus would then take you back to your vehicles after you enjoy your ice cream at camp.  

I am in need of a few volunteers.  I need 2 crossing guards.  These are very time limited, so it is not a huge time commitment.  As soon as the last person passes your post, you can join in or get in your car and go to camp for some delicious ice cream and toppings!  We also need a Thrivent member to apply for an Action Team Project Grant to cover our costs.  Please contact the church office!

Come on out and bring all your friends!  It’s a great family event for our entire community.  If you can give a little bit of your time that day, please get ahold of me or Kristina at United’s office at 875-6591.

 

See you all there!
