Update for: USA Panama City Beach, Florida

Greetings to all Panama City Beach Feastgoers,

We are busily preparing for a productive and enjoyable Feast for all who are planning to attend our Feast in Panama City Beach, Florida. I hope to have an activity calendar for Panama City Beach (PCB) placed on our web page in the next few weeks or less. 

We are planning to have two classes for grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 6. Teens will have their own Bible study on Friday night, designed for them. If you have had experience in teaching our classes at the Feast or you are a credentialed teacher, you might want to volunteer to help us in this area for the Feast. Email me at your earliest convenience if you want to volunteer to help in this important need. 

On another note, we plan a Singles meet and greet on Monday evening (10/17), a Teen Dance on Tuesday evening (10/18), and a Family Dance on Wednesday evening (10/19). All Bible studies are on Friday evening (10/21).

Update for: USA Panama City Beach, Florida

To: All Potential Panama City Beach Golfers

We're a little over seven (7) weeks from the wonderful Feast of Tabernacles. We appreciate the many volunteers in various departmental needs. Thank you, in advance, for you service.

This update is a request for those of you who might want to be a part of our golf outing at the Holiday Golf Course on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 1 pm. I reserved the course for us on this date, but to date (8/24/16), I have no one who has indicated they want to be involved in this golf outing.

The golf outing is broken down into foursomes who play 18 holes total. The cost is $40 per golfer and the golf cart is furnished. If you can't bring your clubs, Holiday will allow you to use a bag of their clubs/irons for $5. Please let me know within the next two weeks (Sept. 12th) whether you can commit to this golf outing. We need at least 16 to make the outing work for us. If we have no one or only a few who sign up, I'll need to cancel our reservation. This outing is open to both genders. 

Please send me an email at jwaust@comcast.net if you can commit to the golf outing. The course is beautiful and well kept and I've not had one complaint over the last five years. Everyone who has played this course has told me that they really enjoyed it. Again, you must let me know by September 12th so I can keep the Holiday Golf reservation for this enjoyable Feast outing. 

Sincerely,

Jerold Aust, Feast Coordinator, PCB

The menu will include: beef tips in gravy, grilled chicken teriyaki, jasmine rice, garlic mashed potatoes, steamed vegetable medley, tossed green salad, assorted dinner rolls and butter, chef’s choice dessert buffet (featuring a variety of delicious cakes and pies), coffee, iced tea, milk and ice water.

The Family Dance takes place from 7:45-10:30 p.m. Get out on the dance floor and dance to your heart’s content. Our experienced DJ will keep you smiling and dancing. The music volume will be low enough to allow for conversations at the tables throughout the room. We will also have table and card games available for those who prefer to converse and mingle rather than dance.

 

Younger children will have an area in the room where they will be able to do supervised arts and crafts. We will also have party favors for them and other surprises! (Parents will still need to oversee their children throughout the evening).

 

A photo area will be available with a special prop to add to the fun. Shoot some pictures and take home enjoyable memories of the family and friends with whom you spent the Feast!

 

Buffet prices (includes all evening’s activities):

Adult (age12-up) $18.00 ($15.00 meal, $3.00 tip)

Child (age 4-11)    $9.00 ($7.50 meal, $1.50 tip)

Child (age 3 and under) eat free from parent’s plate

 

If you choose not to purchase the buffet meal the cost for the evening is $10 per person or $30 per family.

 

All prices are lower than the actual cost of the event in the hope that everyone who would like to attend will be able to do so. Donations are welcome to help cover the costs and to help others attend.

 

After dinner, refreshments will be available which will include chips, popcorn, pretzels, lemonade, punch and ice water. Soft drinks will also be available at vending machines in the facility.

 

We have a limit of 400 people for the buffet so purchase your tickets soon by using the order form below. Ticket requests and payment must be received by September 27th. Important: there will be no ticket sales for the buffet at the Feast since we must provide the final meal quantities to the facility before the Feast begins.

Finally, if you think you can’t afford to attend these events, please inform Keith Wilson at the email or phone number below by September 27th and we’ll see how we can help.
