All the “Lads and Lassies are most walcome” to the Abilene Christian Women’s Guest Luncheon on Thursday, April 5th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Emmanuel Church located at 1300 N. Vine St. in Abilene.  The theme for the April Luncheon  is “Finding Our Way Home.” All women and their guests (male and female) are invited to this annual event.   A “well tidy scran” (delicious) luncheon menu including:  chicken fried chicken, ham, green beans, rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy, toss salad, and homemade pies will be served.  After the meal you and your “chums” will enjoy a “braw” (fantastic) time of lively music and inspiring speakers amidst eye catching decorations!    

Dr. Alan Myers of Bluestem Veterinary Services, Inc. and his father, LaVerne Myers, will whisk us away to the Scottish Highland Games as the Special Feature Speakers at this year’s luncheon.  LaVerne Myers, a retired dairy farmer, now serves as Dickinson County Commissioner.  Dr. Myers grew up on the dairy farm.  He graduated from KSU in 1990 with a degree in Agricultural Engineering.  He then graduated from KSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994.  He has owned and operated Bluestem Veterinary Service south of Abilene since that time.  He is married to Leslie and they have 3 daughters.  Dr. Myers began competing in the Scottish Highland Games in 1986 during his freshman year of college and has competed for 20 years in over 300 games. He and his father hold many world records in this sport.   Training is very demanding. It requires several sessions of weightlifting each week.  Competitors must wear Official Highland Dress, a kilt, to compete.  Dr. Myers and his father will give a talk and demonstration of  their activities in the 2017 IAWA Gold Cup All Round Weightlifting Championship during their recent trip to Glasgow, Scotland.  Everyone will want to be at this “pure barry”  (utterly wonderful, fantastic) event!

Chad T. Young, Salina Rescue Mission, Executive Director and author will be the Featured Speaker at this luncheon.  Mr. Young will share his personal story of how he struggled for 17 years with alcohol,  drug addiction and basic life management skills.  His transition from this low and self-destructive existence to recovery and helping other men to overcome addictions and life-controlling issues is truly remarkable and will be an encouragement to all. 

If you would like to donate items needed by the Salina Rescue Mission such as:  toilet paper, Free and Clear Laundry Detergent, Cough Drops, or Allergy & Cold Medicine, please bring them with you to the luncheon.   Thank you. 

The Special Music will be provided by the pastor at Emmanuel Church, Rev. Gordon McClure and his wife, pianist, Amy McClure.
