After 25 years of loving and caring for children in our community, Children’s Center Director Non Mead is retiring. Non has been the director of LAUMC’s preschool for the past 15 years, and she has devoted her time and energy to supporting young families as they navigate this wonderful stage of life. The church and preschool community is invited to two opportunities to celebrate Non’s time with us.
Children’s Celebration Sunday, May 31
Worship: 8:00, 9:30, & 11:15am, Sanctuary
Luncheon: 12:30pm, Creekside
The church will celebrate Non’s instrumental ministry with our preschool children on Children’s Celebration Sunday, May 31, at all morning services. Non will preach at the three morning services. Afterward, all are invited to a luncheon to honor her. If you are able to attend the luncheon, please RSVP here. Cards and notes of wishes and thanks for Non will be welcomed.
Children’s Center Lemonade Social
Sunday, June 7, 2:00–5:00pm, University Club of Palo Alto
The Children’s Center Preschool is hosting a celebration of Non’s contribution to the children and families in our community. This lemonade and cookie social is designed to provide an opportunity for anyone who has been touched by Non’s teaching and guidance to drop by and say hi. There is a large grassy area for play, and we kindly ask that parents supervise their own children. You are invited to stop by to wish Non well in the next chapter of her life. Please RSVP here for planning purposes.
Gift for Non
We can only guess what Non may need as she begins to fully enjoy retirement and time with her precious grandchildren. If you would like to make a monetary retirement gift for Non’s personal use, please make your check payable to Non Mead with “gift” in the memo line. Only the names of the gift givers will be provided to Non. Checks can be sent to the church office or the Children’s Center, or put in the Sunday offering plate. Your direct gift to Non is NOT tax deductible.
