APLC Oktoberfest 2015

Don’t miss this awesome evening! – Saturday, September 26

If you attended the Oktoberfest last year, you know that it was a wonderful evening filled with music, laughter and fellowship.  We have a polka band for the evening, delicious food and much more.  Bring your favorite beer stein to enter into a contest.  Last year we had some great entries.  If you participated last year, please bring a different stein this year.  In addition to the beer stein contest,  we will be having a costume contest.  Those of us on the committee really enjoyed dressing up and we invite you to do the same.   We have also added a few baskets to raffle off this year.  Sing-a-longs and photo ops will also be available.  It is very important that we have a good head count for the event so we know how much food to buy.  If you have not had the opportunity to sign up at church, please feel free to email Debbie.  We will also be selling tickets Sunday, September 20th at both services.  If you are interested in helping with this event, we would love to have you.  We need people to sell raffle tickets and take pictures so if you are interested, let Debbie know.  Hope to see you all at this event.
