A. CHOW Program – Duties for the class in charge of program for CHOW are to plan the activity (or activities) for the adults:

    1. Schedule:
      • 6:00 – 6:30 supper served
      • 6:45 – 7:45 activities for all
    2. You will be able to use the fellowship hall or the sanctuary. If you plan to use the sanctuary, be sure Environmental Technician knows if it will need to be heated. The choir room and the room by the south door on the first floor will have children’s groups in them.
    3. If you want to use the fellowship hall, remember there will be tables set up for the meal. You can plan to either make sure latecomers sit where the table can be left up (at either end of the room), but have people who come early sit in the middle and then take their tables down when they are done eating OR you can plan to leave all tables set up.
    4. We are envisioning one activity for adults (plus maybe a quilt in frame.)
    5. It is your responsibility to get the activities started and ended on time. Give an announcement at 6:40 that activities will start in 5 minutes. We want to keep this on schedule so that parents with young children can be done at 7:45. If the conversation or activity lingers, be sure to let people know that those who need to leave are free to do so.
    6. Clean up after the activity.
