We had a brief but fun discussion of Special Events at the second Awana per-season meeting on Sunday, August 26th. We came up with titles and (by implication, mostly) themes for the six special events. We also know the dates for the remaining ‘not so special’ events. Below is a draft of the events calendar. Below that is a small form where you can sign up to lead one of the events. You can sign up as an individual or on behalf of a club. In either case you will need to recruit help for the event.
Here’s a draft of ‘special event’ page for Parent Leader Handbook
