EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES
The LALSAC sports league is considering some schedule changes for next year, etc. The Education Committee received a report from our Athletic Director, Mr. Groth, and authorized him to support the changes. Education Chairman Mike Langrehr reported on an information gathering trip to some recently constructed WELS schools on Dec. 26 to gain insight for our own possible building plans in the future. Schools visited were St. Peter in Weyauwega, Emanuel, New London and Shepherd of the Valley in Menasha. Mr. Dan Arndt reported on some land options for future building. This is an ongoing process. Financial struggles for Luther and Synod were noted. Direct offerings over and above those budgeted for Luther and Synod are welcome.
