WMPC Spring Trip to Pennsylvania

Senior Adults, Keenagers & Friends

Travel to historic Pennsylvania, visiting Philadelphia, Lancaster and Hershey. Highlights will include guided sightseeing tours, delicious meals and a performance of Jonah at the Sight and Sound Theater in the Amish country. Find the details here.

Keenagers is a fellowship group sponsored by WMPC and Raleigh Parks and Recreation, and is designed for adults ages 55 plus. Our membership drive is throughout September and there is a $10.00 annual fee to help cover the costs of speakers’ lunches. We meet on Thursdays, September - May, from 10:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. (Come around 10:40 a.m. for good parking as most of our Bible studies dismiss around 10:30 a.m.) Each week we begin with a short business meeting followed by a great program and devotional. At noon, we enjoy a hot meal served by the best cooks in Raleigh! The fee for lunch is $5. Usually the group takes a day trip to a place of interest once a month. We will take an overnight trip in the Spring.

Keenagers Meeting Schedule

January 26: Lora Zinsmeister Leads Hymn Sing And Stories in Choir Room
Church musician Lora Zinsmeister will lead us in a morning of singing hymns from “ordinary time” in the church liturgical year. We will explore stories behind the writing of these hymns and look at old favorites as well as hymns new to our Presbyterian Hymnal Glory to God. Keenagers will meet in the Choir Room on this day.

February 2 - The Amazing Bays of North Carolina
Hervey McIver will talk about the geological phenomenon of the North Carolina bays. Since their origin is still unknown, he will present a set of theories. He will also focus on their diversity, conservation importance and conservation efforts to protect them. Hervey McIver is a Protection Specialist with The Nature Conservancy and has been working in the area of habitat and species conservation for more than 20 years.

February 9 - Summer at the White House
White Memorial church member Graeme Peterson will speak about his experience as an intern at the White House last summer, where he worked as the health policy intern on the Domestic Policy Council. Graeme Peterson is a senior at Duke University studying public policy.

February 16 - Field Trip to the NC Museum of History
Join other Keenagers for this docent-led tour of the Hugh Morton Photography exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History. White Memorial member Elaine Mason will be our guide for this exhibit compiled from 80 years of Morton’s work. The photographs are part of the University of North Carolina archives and include events and views from all over the state. We’ll have lunch afterward together.

February 23 - James Fenwick
James Fenwick is the Pastoral Resident for Congregational Care here at White Memorial and will share with us his life from early age to where he is now. He’ll tell us about his upbringing, early church activities, schools attended, how he came to be here and where his dreams and goals will lead him.
