Have you signed up yet for the MFI Fundraising Celebration on Friday, October 16th? While we normally have 500 people join us for our banquet at the Marriott, this year’s event will be hosted at a local church with a small in person audience (currently sold out) and live-streamed to your home. (You can register HERE.)
Part of the fun of the annual MFI banquets has been sharing food and fellowship with a ballroom full of people who also share your values. Unfortunately, because of COVID, we’re unable to do that this year, BUT, you can still host a watch party at your home, and invite family or friends to view our event with you. And if you provide the fellowship, we’ll provide the food!
Most years, we serve our banquet guests some form of chicken (it is a fundraiser, after all) and distribute organic eggs from our longtime sponsor, The Country Hen. I am happy to announce that this year we have a new poultry-based sponsor: Chick-fil-A of Woburn! Tell us who you’re having over to watch our event with, and we’ll mail you Chick-fil-A gift cards for your whole party.
Our program will be similar to what you’ve experienced at previous banquets: We’ll start at 7pm with the national anthem and invocation, followed by presentation of the MFI Citizenship Award. Then I will give a report on MFI’s successes over the past year and we’ll introduce our keynote speaker, Dr. Paul Jehle, to inspire us with the story of our Pilgrim forefathers, who landed at Plymouth 400 years ago this fall. Dr. Jehle is a leading voice for preserving our godly heritage and the legacy of faith and religious freedom in our commonwealth. Many MFI supporters know him from his extremely popular historical tours of the state house during our annual lobby day events. We are excited to hear him address the legacy of faith, family and freedom founded at Plymouth Rock and entrusted to us by the Pilgrims.
Will you join us?
