BEMUS POINT – Where would you rather be than sitting on the porch at the Hotel Lenhart on Labor Day, raising money for a good cause with some good friends? We have the event for you!
The Honduras Rock-A-Thon is Monday, September 3 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Bemus Point, NY at the Hotel Lenhart porch. The money raised at this event supports the long time Honduras Mission sponsored by St. Timothy Lutheran Church, along with several other local churches. The mission supports 38 children and their families in the small village of la Villa de San Francisco with a weekly educational program for the children, and protein based food for the families.
People from our community form teams to rock in a chair on the porch of the Lenhart. The teams find sponsors for their chair, and those teams who earn $100 or more, get a t-shirt for the captain of their team. The best part of the day is relaxing with old and new friends while raising money for this worthy cause.
The Honduras Mission Project is almost 20 years old, and teams have gone to this village for the last 13 years, and are in the process of planning a mission trip for October of 2012. Over 100 people have participated in the mission, working with these children and families over the years, and have built buildings, hired staff and teachers, put on Bible Day Camp, brought medical and dental brigades, encouraged other churches to sponsor their own mission trips, and so much more.
Join us on Monday, September 3rd at the porch of the Hotel Lenhart, rock with us, or sponsor one of the rockers who will be raising money for this project. There will be baskets to raffle, and other ways you can help, or just learn more about the mission. The event is from 11-6, with registration at 10:30, and there will be musical entertainment by several live groups, including the St Luke Acoustic Band, Adam McKillip, Forward Motion, Keith Webb, Harmony Express, The Subers, Randy Graham.
