Current Schedule for Centennial Events
Mark you calendar and plan to join in the celebration of our first 100 years.
October 21st - Kickoff Pot Luck Lunch featuring recipes from our Lutheran heritage. The plan is to assign recipes so that we don't get too much of any one favorite. Pictures of past events will be shared while we eat. Remembering the member support that made our past possible, we hope to inspire everyone to continue the tradition of sharing our gifts of time, talents, and financial support.
Also, banners made by members of the congregation will be unveiled on October 21st.
November 11th - Afternoon reception and concert to celebrate our music tradition.
February 10th - Church Service with Bishop Marie Yerge to celebrate the 100th anniversary to the day when the first Lutheran Service was held here in Ithaca. Our Presbyterian friends will be thanked for providing their church as a site for our first service.
June 9th - Catered brunch and church service at St. Lukes. A special invitation will be sent to St. Luke alumni. If you know people who were students here, it is not too early to invite them to plan their vacation around a trip back to Ithaca. This is the same as the Cornell Reunion so hotel space may be scarce.
