Annual Meeting and Banquet

Highland Annual Meeting and Banquet - Thursday, November 16, 2023

Please join us for our fall gathering of the Highland community! This will be an opportunity to hear about how Highland is doing, eat a delicious dinner, and chat with other friends of Highland.

The Banquet will be held at the Lindale Mennonite Church fellowship hall. Doors will open at 5:30pm. The event will include a meal (beginning at 6:15), followed by a short program and an opportunity to give financial support to Highland's ministry. The evening should wrap up around 8:15.

Menu and form to RSVP are included below.

Note: Children are welcome, though we will NOT be providing supervised childcare. There will be space set aside where older children can do homework or younger children can play quietly with parent supervision.

If you are interested in being a table host for the Banquet, please contact Highland's main office. Table hosts typically invite 4-10 other people to join them for the Banquet; then they make their table group feel welcome on the evening of the Banquet and facilitate collecting any donations from their group.
