Dear Westminster Parent/Choir Member/Musician/Chaperone:
It’s time to plan for the Mo-Ranch/PAM 2017 Worship and Music Conference!

We would like to take as many children and youth as possible to this wonderful week of choirs, inspiring worship, children’s chimes, youth hand bells, instrumental ensembles, and making new friends along the beautiful Guadalupe River.

WHAT: Check out the brochure online: http://presbymusic.org/pdf/2017-MoRanch-WM-Brochure.pdf

WHEN: June 18 – 23, 2015 (Father’s Day week). We would leave on Sunday morning and return on Friday.

WHERE: Mo Ranch Presbyterian Assembly, Hunt, TX.

COST: The conference fees and housing and meals info are listed below according to age. You are encouraged to apply for all applicable scholarships from PAM (Presbyterian Association of Musicians) and Mo Ranch, especially if you are sending multiple children. WPC has money set aside for conference attendance and there are also funds available from the Youth Choir Coffee/Chocolate sales throughout the year. BUT, we can’t help if you don’t apply!

If your child wants to join us, please turn in an application even if you can’t pay the deposit!

SCHOLARSHIPS: http://presbymusic.org/ScholarshipApp.html

BOTTOM LINE: Please print and fill out a registration form for each child – legibly – and return to Debbie Dalton with a $75 deposit per child. I will register everyone at the same time! If you have any questions, please call or write Debbie Dalton (936) 371-0302, ddalton@sfasu.edu or talk to Noble, Anna, Megan, Joseph or Josie about their experience last year!

If your child wants to join us, please turn in an application even if you can’t pay the deposit!
