Deaf Workshops in Hershey, PA November 15-17, 2013
I received this email from Jenice Wolgemuth of Deaf Konnect to spread the word about the conference happening this weekend. The conference agenda and times are below. Their home website is posted at the bottom.
Subject: Deaf workshops - Spread the word
This weekend, Nov 15-17, there is a fantastic conference, The Eastern Christian Conference, at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center. It begins on Friday night with a worship time that is interpreted. Then on Sat there is another interpreted worship time followed by a series of workshops especially for the deaf. The evening has another interpreted worship time and then on Sunday is another interpreted worship time. The main meetings are in the rooms to the left of the main entrance to the convention area (facing 322). ($35/person, $50/family is a GREAT price for a weekend of signing practice and learning about signing music for the deaf!)
The deaf workshops will be especially interesting for all deaf and those involved in serving them. Attached are information sheets about this weekend.
PS - there is another women's conference to the right of the main entrance
