ADORE Team Plans Trip to Levine Museum of the New South for Members

Join members on an interesting field trip to Levine Museum if the New South on Sunday afternoon, June 22! The newly formed ADORE team is sponsoring this excursion to the Levine Museum as the beginning of a year long effort to increase awareness and appreciation of diversity, especially in our own congregation.

We will leave after the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, June 22. (Only one service starting that Sunday) We will have a light lunch at church that will be provided and then car pool to the museum, leaving about 11:45 a.m. We will probably return between 3 and 4 p.m.

To those unfamiliar with the Levine Museum, the museum is a storehouse of fascinating history of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area and has much information about Charlotte’s civil rights history, including the integration of public schools after the 1954 Brown Supreme Court case and the 1969 case to integrate the school through planned busing.
A current exhibit through August is Faces of Freedom Summer, 104 photographs taken in 1964 in Mississippi.

The Levine is located downtown on East 7th Street. We will be in a group at the museum
with a tour guide and have an opportunity to meet afterwards to discuss our reactions. The cost of admission is $5 for members of a group and there is no charge for parking on Sundays in the adjoining garage.

Members of the ADORE team include Christine Robinson and Lauren Neal (co-chairs) and David Parker, Eva Danner, Arvind Patil, Alan Perkinson, Elaine Slaton, Anne Laukaitis and Rev. Robin Tanner. This event is the first of many interesting activities the ADORE team will sponsor in the 2014-2015 church year.

Please let Anne Laukaitis (Laukaitis@windstream.net) know if you plan to attend so that we can have a number for lunch on June 22.
