Enterprise Retiree Fair

Enterprise Civic Center Highway 167 North
The Enterprise Chamber of Commerce Retiree Committee will host the Annual Retiree Fair on October 8th from 9am – 1pm. We will be set up in Enterprise Civic Center on Highway 167 North. “This event is designed to help retirees know what is offered to them in the Enterprise community. We want to help our citizens of the retirement age be able to know what is offered to them once they retire. The most common issues spoken of is ‘we didn’t know this was an option, or this was offered in Enterprise’. Our businesses have so much to offer and we want everyone to know. We will have vendors set up to pass out information, live music to dance to, many door prizes to win, and free lunch provided by Sam Boswell. This year, we have worked with Medical Center Enterprise and they will be offering FREE information sessions throughout the day. These sessions will be led by a physician, pharmacist, etc. and offer lots of information to help with daily life issues. The Retiree Fair is a free event and everyone of retiree age is welcome to attend.

Southeast Awakening Praise Dance Conference

Northview Christian Church, 200 Dome Lane, Dothan, AL 36303
Cost? = $30 per person or if you are a group of 15 or more, discount is to $25 per person

This event is meant to train dance ministries and leaders with a wealth of knowledge in the foundational aspect of dance as true ministry and worship coupled with the technical aspect, offer a guide into the appropriate attire, give leaders the requisite tools to empower their ministries, have community with fellow dancers who love to give praise and worship through movement, and so much more. This is for any level of dancer ages 6 & up. It is only $30 per person and for the level of expertise presented, that is an amazing price. If your ministries register as a group, you can take advantage of the $5 discount for 15 or more signing up at once.

I am a product of the Southeast Alabama Dance Company there and trained under Tracy Solomon for about 13 years from age 3. I was a 1999 graduate with Honors from Northview High School. I am now working in Ministry with my husband Ps. John Gray who is one of the Associate Pastors at Lakewood Church in Houston, TX under Pastor Joel Osteen and I am the Dance Director for our newly organized dance ministry here with 350 plus members. I'm excited to bring a fresh perspective to dance as a form of worship and bring out the true meaning on why it is important.

I have so many accomplished guests as well as a great friend of mind coming, Ms. LeToya Luckett who is a form member of Destiny's Child, a successful solo artist, actress most notably for her role on Single Ladies, and friend of mine to share and speak to the participants as well.
