The Big Blue Dock will be the scene this Sunday for the Annual Seasonal Closing Service beginning at 10:30 am. This will be immediately followed by the popular "Hot Dog Fellowship" with cookies and drink. This year the Adult Wheels Parade will start at 1:00 pm, so the Season will be going out with colorfully decorated golf carts, lawn tractors, bicycles, power wheelchairs, and walkers!
The Service will feature the Walt and Jeanne Barger Litany used as a prayer of reflection, and the popular hymn, "Lord, You Have Come to the Lakeshore." Also featured will be our three resident speakers, giving brief histories, memories, and what the SLI has meant to them. The informal speaking order will be long-time residents: Fred Schuknecht, Julie Hoffner, and (the Rev.) Joanne Brocklehurst.
Closing highlights include the hymn "Blest Be the Tie that Binds," the lowering of the Gavel by SLI President Bill Schaefer, and the free lunch. Come to celebrate the season and to say Goodbye to friends 'til next time.
