We are planning to have the sacrament for all in attendance who desire to participate. There will also be a short, small program to remember the resurrection of the Savior. The remainder of the morning will be presented by Denver Snuffer, our invited guest. Denver will then be hosting a question and answer session until about 12:30 or 1pm.
Please Remember to RSVP
Additionally, we have been asked to share a reminder to RSVP to the conference, as it is very important to have accurate numbers for the Passover and for Saturday activities. The camp needs to purchase the food in advance. They also need to know so they can purchase bread and wine for Sunday Sacrament in Grand Junction.
As of Friday 12 Apr 2019, the RSVP numbers are:
542 for the conference, including Sunday
455 for the Passover meal Friday evening
We hope you will plan now to attend this historic conference in Western Colorado to celebrate the resurrection of the Savior with family and friends who also love the Lord.
Note: If you have already RSVP’d, you will be receiving a confirming email shortly.
The Camp is Full
Update 4-12-19: The lodging reservations at the camp are completely filled up. Attendees are still welcome to come to the conference, but will need to find lodging elsewhere. The Passover and other meals are also completely booked. If you do not already have an RSVP for meals from the camp, be sure to make arrangements to bring your own meals that can be consumed outside the dining hall as no outside food is allowed in the hall.
