Trick or Treat in Tennessee
October 17-20 2013
DuBose Conference Center
The East Tennessee Mini Makers (Winifred Holloway and Becky Lipscomb) would like to invite you to our FABULOUS workshop weekend celebrating all thing Merry and Mary!
We will begin on Thursday afternoon with registration beginning at 2pm. Natalie Harwood will be hosting a complimentary workshop... birdhouses and she will have all supplies and birdhouses ready to decorate. You will be given a free raffle ticket for attending and on Saturday evening we will draw for a special prize for the lucky participant.
Thursday evening at 5 we will have our opening dinner with a special souvenir created by Beth Hamilton, something not to be missed! Afterwards we will go to the chapel for roundtables workshops and sales.
Each morning we will have our breakfast buffet at 8 followed by our classes. Lunch is at noon and supper on Friday and Saturday will be at 6. Our food is plentiful and home-cooked by the ladies at DuBose.
During the weekend we will have special treats made by our guests at each meal. First timers are not expected to make these or donate raffle items but just be our guests this time. Our raffle donation last year to the Christian Appalachian Project was just over $2000. We designate it to their Hungry Kids Project, feeding kids when no free breakfasts or lunches are available....weekends, school breaks, summer vacation.
On Friday evening we trick or treat in the lower hall of our dorm and also at Walker House (you may dress up or not, but it's fun)! And then head out to the bonfire for scary stories, and roasting marshmallows.
Saturday will find us following the same class schedule except we will have our raffle drawing at noon and dinner we will be all decorated in ME fashion. Last chance to shop will be afterwards in the chapel where we'll have dessert (cookies and ice cream floats like last year).
All of this comes to the reasonable cost of $300 (3 nights and 7 meals). Workshops are extra. If you want to stay and have breakfast before you hit the road Sunday morning, the cost is an extra $10. This includes all taxes and a nice gratuity for the ladies who take such good care of us for the weekend.
Please remember that we do not view Halloween as anything other than a children's time to dress up and play. If you are offended by this holiday, we respectfully remind you that this weekend is not for you.
Now for classes....think all things Mary or Merry. and some others too.
