Sponsored by Abiding Presence Lutheran Church and Thrivent for Lutherans, the July Jamboree is a chance for the Rochester community to come together and to enjoy County Fair type activities on Saturday, July 28th.
The cost of the event is whatever each individual or family feels they can donate to the programs of Rochester’s Neighborhood House. Checks should be made out to APLC with Neighborhood House on the memo line. Cash is also welcome. We hope all participants will show love for their neighbors in need in whatever amount they can. All events are covered by your donation except for the picnic meal. Suggested donation at the meal is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for ages 2 to 11.
