Debra Zagaeski, our long-term former Director of Religious Education (DRE) will be visiting Follen on Sunday, September 25th for church and coffee hour. For the many whose lives she touched over her 7 years as the Director of Religious Education, we have several ways in which you can express your appreciation for her service to Follen and celebrate her special way of engaging the children and youth.
Ø Today after church, we will be in the library with note cards, markers, colored papers and other supplies if you would like to contribute to Debra’s “box of letters”. Children too are encouraged to share a message.
Ø We are collecting monetary donations and will present Debra with this communal gift as a thank you. Please make the check out to Catherine Collins who is coordinating the donation. You can drop off a donation today in the library after church, send it to Catherine’s home at 15 Mill Street in Lincoln, MA 01773 or put it in Sarah Garner’s mailbox at Follen. Catherine will cash all checks on September 21st so please get them to her before then.
Ø Finally, we are planning a special cake with symbols of Debra’s time at Follen. Please come join the REAT on Sunday, September 25th for church and coffee hour to recognize Debra’s many contributions to Follen.
The REAT is excited to visit with Debra, share our appreciation, and wish her well on the next steps of her journey.
