The former post about NCFCA early bird affiliation was a mistake. That was APOLLOS early bird affiliation! Get your worms, Apollos!
1. The early bird deadline for Apollos membership with a price of $100 for one student, $125 for two or more is by June 15. Then, it'll increase to $125 for one student, $150 for two or more.
2. Students and parents, start praying and thinking about what ways God would have you lead at club this next year!
A note from your Director:
I don't do type-to-cry as effectively as I do talk-to-cry, but I'm still pretty good.
Had I had fewer tears (see how I said "fewer" rather than "less"?) I might have been able to compose thoughts at the picnic. Had I composed, they would have consisted of the following:
You people are the best. I'm so thankful that I got to spend hours and hours every week with you. I wouldn't have wanted anyone different there. I am so so proud of each of you smart, personable, sweet kids (almost grown ups). Thank you for having great attitudes, for respecting and participating with me, for being so funny and honestly entertaining, and for being such good friends. We've worked on some really important skills that I hope God will continue to use in your lives and in the lives of those who need you. I'm praying that you will each know the salvation of the Lord and the joy of serving Him your whole lives. TP'ers, keep your orange sheets in the forefront of your minds! LD'ers, don't steal tables. It is wrong. Speechers, keep talking to people you don't like. Moms, you are awesome!
A good goal for 2019-2020 would be to text or message a Malone at least once a month.
And we are going to miss our amazing seniors!!!!! Melissa, Graca, Perseus, Juliana, Ethan, and Eden are finishing up their high school and moving on. Can i just say that you are each so much better prepared for college and for life then the normal person anywhere? We love you all!
