Hey DRAMA Families! You will find all of the information you need to participate in DRAMA this fall below. Please read this letter carefully as we’ve made some significant changes this session!
The older team, Alpha, will be Directed this Fall by Christopher (Chris) & Jaimee King. If you have any questions please contact us. Chris – firstname.lastname@example.org (717)808-8277 and Jaimee – JHLM12@gmail.com (201)580-0051.
Parent Meetings: Instead of hosting parent meetings this fall, we decided to try something new: we will send out an email after we’ve confirmed the teams for this session. It is very important that parents read and respond to this email, as it will include important information like the Training Camp meal sign up and dates for potential outreaches. If a member is 18 or older, they may participate in the session independently from their parents by following our Older Member Policy on the website.
Training Camp: Thursday, September 21st (8:30 am) – Saturday, September 23rd (7:30 pm), at Woodcrest Retreat (225 Woodcrest Drive, Ephrata). This Training Camp we are adding a family potluck for Saturday supper at 5:30 pm. All families of current members are invited to come for supper and bring a dish to share. After supper, we will have a short wrap up time, after which you and your youth are free to go.
Session Duration: Training Camp through Monday, December 11th. We plan to have one team again this session, and will meet at the DRAMA Office (131 Terrace Ave, Ephrata).
-Alpha will be meeting on Monday evenings, 6:30-9:00 pm.
